Reverse Advent Calendar 2018- do you have goods you can donate to charity?
Here, at Osborne Morris & Morgan, we are once again asking you, our local community, to help bring a little festive cheer to those in need this Christmas by contributing to our Reverse Advent Calendar 2018.
We are collecting for the community Food Bank and Toy Appeal, run by The Salvation Army, and hope to be able to deliver food items and festive treats to the local families who depend on the initiatives.
Associate Legal Executive, Jemma Wixted, who is managing the project said;
“Our Reverse Advent Calendar last year was fantastic. We helped the charity to provide 159 Christmas parcels, full of toys, gifts, sweets and more, to families in need, in our local area. Many food parcels were prepared and distributed too.
We urge anyone to pop into us with their donations. We will have 2 large boxes in our reception and members of staff will also be bringing food items and gifts in every day”.
The deadline for dropping in items to us is 17th December– when we will be handing everything over to the Salvation Army who will be delivering the items to those in need in the local community this Christmas.
Food items, including festive treats are welcome, such as biscuits, chocolates etc.
“We have been told that there is always a need for gifts for teenagers -stationery, DVDs, toiletries as the younger children are often bought for”, says Jemma.
If you would like to donate, please drop items off at the offices of Osborne Morris & Morgan at Danbury House on West Street, Leighton Buzzard.
