With the recent requirement for people to wear face-covering in enclosed public spaces, the additional cost of this burden is not one that will be easily met by some of the most vulnerable people in our city.
We are therefore delighted to announce that we have donated 10,000 face masks to the Stoke-on-Trent foodbank for distribution within their food parcels.
C247.COM are grateful for the work that they do to support people in the Stoke-on-Trent community who may have fallen on hard times and we all must pull together to help protect and support one another where we can. We are delighted to be able to help in such unprecedented times.
A little about Stoke-on-Trent Foodbank
Stoke-on-Trent first opened its door on May 3rd 2012 - They were dismayed to hear that 1 in 3 children in Stoke-on-Trent was living below the ‘bread line’ and asked how could they help.
Since that day the generous people of Stoke-on-Trent have donated over 436,000kg of food enabling us to give out three days’ supply of nutritionally balanced, long-life food to over 49,000 people of which over 18,800 are children. They now have 15 Distribution Centres covering the whole of Stoke-on-Trent, a dedicated warehouse space using the whole of an empty Methodist Church building and an office space donated by the Hanley Community Fire Station.
