Purley Food Hub is a registered charity, keen to receive donations to support their work.
It serves people in need in Croydon, not just the immediate Purley area.
Purley Food Hub thanks everyone for their ongoing support and reports,
“In December we provided 4,000 meals to nearly 450 people going through tough times, including 2,000 meals in the 3 extremely busy sessions immediately before Christmas. It was our most ever meals provided in a single month and an increase of over 30 per cent on December 2016. In addition 135 Christmas Lunch on Jesus food hampers were packed and delivered by a small army of volunteers to families and others throughout the borough on 23rd December, and 200 children each received 2 toys for Christmas through Toys for Joy.
We were blessed during November and December with many amazing donations of food and money and toys by churches, schools, local organisations and businesses, families and individuals.”
They now need help to restock their shelves…..
