It goes without saying that COVID-19 has had a devastating impact on everybody around the world. The team at The Big Help Project have seen first-hand the dire consequences on individuals and families all across Knowsley. This is why they need your help this year more than ever before.
As a result of companies being forced to close their doors, furlough and people needing to self-isolate, there has been an extreme increase of requests for food parcels. This year alone the team have fed 3 times more people than they normally would, bringing their total to over 30,000. Due to this increase, the team are in desperate need of your donations.
If you haven’t heard about our Reverse Advent Calendar before, let us explain how it works:
Instead of a normal December advent calendar in which you get a gift, you instead give a food donation for each day of November. All you need is a box or a bag and you simply pop an item of food in every day from the 1st November until the 30th November. The reason they hold the Reverse Advent Calendar during November is because the team can then make sure the families and individuals who are receiving your donations have food for over December.
If you’re unsure about what items you can donate, see the ‘shopping list’ above as an example, but please no mince pies or alcohol.
Thank you for your donations and support especially during these difficult times.
