Friendly House has managed to gather more than 100 selection boxes for Mothershare, a charity that supports vulnerable families by providing them with essential items.
The team visited Ian from the charity, who informed them that this year, Mothershare has requested presents for 350 children. Ian expressed how the selection boxes help to enhance the gifts for those who may not receive much. He also mentioned that for a child to receive gifts from Mothershare, a referral from a social worker or healthcare provider is required, and the child is then matched with a sponsor who will purchase their presents.
The young people at Friendly House actively participated in the collection by buying selection boxes every week during their grocery shopping trips and even using their own money to contribute.
They are already brainstorming ideas on how they can assist next Christmas.
We would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to everyone who donated. Thanks to your generosity, these selection boxes were able to bring some much-needed holiday joy to a family in need this Christmas.
