Foodbank thank the community for support during pandemic

Foodbank thank the community for support during pandemic

by Tom Martin (January 2021)

Shoreline Church Foodbank has expressed their gratitude to the community of Southport and its surrounding areas for all their kind donations during these unprecedented times.

 

Julie Woods, one of the foodbank managers said: “There has been a real sense of the diversity of community who have come with one mind and one heart to help to meet the needs of individuals, couples and families.”

 

They also wanted to give a special thanks to all the wonderful volunteers who have a real passion to serve their community. 

 

Julie added: “The Foodbank is grateful for all the online-giving, the anonymous donations through the church letter-box and the faithfulness of those who donate their home grown fruit and vegetables, who kindly drop off bags and boxes of food on a regular basis.

 

“All the large and small companies that have given tirelessly to the cause over the past months and years are very much appreciated.

 

“Charities that helped fund a van to drop off food and supplies to those who were shielding have given a lifeline to those unable to come out. 

“We have been provided with extra volunteer drivers and many work tirelessly on behalf of their community. We couldn’t do it without them! They all are a great testimony to the good will of our town.”
