DONATIONS NEEDED – PLEASE SUPPORT IF YOU CAN
NEW WARM CLOTHES – HATS, .GLOVES ETC
We are forging ahead with our hamper project and 2-day event this year, hoping that Government Guidance does not change. We work closely with other charities such as Warming up the Homeless so we try to complement each other with the support we offer to those most in need and vulnerable. Instead of having a second hand clothing store over Christmas, we have decided to offer people hats and gloves etc plus new warm socks and suitable underwear for men and women if we receive these items. If you are able to donate any of these then please bring to the Salvation Army Hall, St Andrews Square, Hastings in the week of 13th December daytime as volunteers will be there for collection.
NEW TOY APPEAL
We are also running a new toy appeal to gather presents for local children who may not have much this Christmas. We distribute these with our food hampers (nominations from agencies to reach the families most in need) and we also have a Father Christmas Day for children to attend the Salvation Army Hall to meet Santa. This is planned for THURSDAY 23RD DECEMBER 2021 FROM 10 TILL 2PM.
If you are able to support in this way then please bring new toys to the Salvation Army Hall on the week of 13th December. There will also be a donation bin available at the Bexhill Glynde Gap Tesco store.
NON-PERISHABLE FOOD ITEMS FOR HAMPERS
We are packing and distributing over 700 food hampers locally to the most in need this Christmas. If you are able to donate any non-perishable food items then please bring to the Salvation Army Hall in Hastings before 16th December – the Hall is not always manned so please ring in advance. We accept any in date non-perishable food items including packets and tins and particularly like to receive more luxury items such as biscuits, cakes, chocolates and sweets.
THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR ANY SUPPORT AND DONATIONS OFFERED.
