Our local foodbank is currently running a Christmas appeal and I am happy to be supporting them by opening up our office for donations. You can drop off any donations you would like to contribute to 20 Crawfurd Street, Greenock, Inverclyde, PA15 1LJ. All donations must be in by the 15th of December.
The foodbank is specifically looking for donations to contribute to their Christmas Hampers and will provide the basics of a Christmas dinner bus also some extra treats to make the Christmas Day special.
The foodbank are also looking for winter warmers, warm winter clothes such as woolly hats, scarves, gloves, blankets, warm socks and hot water bottles for both adults and children.
There are over 11,000 people facing crisis in Inverclyde and as Christmas approaches the foodbank is getting ready to help individuals and families struggling over the holiday period.
As well as donations the foodbank is also looking for volunteers to help out with collections on the 3rd, 4th & 5th of December in the Greenock and Port Glasgow Tesco as well as packing the Christmas Hampers on the 15th, 16th and 17th. I will be giving my time and if you have any spare time over these days I would encourage you to do the same. All the information is attached bellow.
