Salvation Army & Leeds South and East Food Bank Donations December 2020
Doing our part at Christmas..
After a difficult year Digital Officer Amy Kot wanted to reach out to the people who are suffering the most and bring joy to their Christmas so, we team up with Salvation Army Christmas Present Appeal to donate Christmas Presents and Toys which will be wrapped and distributed to children whose parents are unable to afford presents this Christmas. We also teamed up with Leeds South and East Food Bank at Tesco’s Seacroft to donate lots of urgently needed food.
Thanks to our team, we were able to donate 3 large boxes of urgently needed food the Leeds South and East Food Bank. Our Salvation Army donations helped to provide toys for nearly 900 children, as well as providing gifts for the parents and Christmas hampers for the families. The charity were able to give out 80 bags of toiletries, gloves, socks and hats etc. to the most vulnerable of Leeds including those who are homeless and to offer good winter-quality sleeping bags to those who needed them. They were able to provide toys for HMP Leeds Visitor Centre and some board games for the residents at YOI Wetherby. They also continue with the food programme which reached nearly 8,000 hot takeaway meals since early 2020.
