S.M.I.L.E London & Essex - Client food pantry
By SMILE London & Essex on 03/02/2021
What – SMILE THROUGH COVID-19
New project funded by community donations
Where – Our Romford Hub (52 North Street)
When – Monday to Friday 9.30 to 4pm
Who - S.M.I.L.E London & Essex – charity number: 1177989
How – Throughout the year we support families who are on low income or are in financial crisis. Our aim is to provide aid to allow all children living in poverty to have the same opportunities as their better off peers. We do this by providing Free Schools uniform, clothing bundles, prom dresses, Easter treats and Christmas presents.
During this difficult time these families have had their already small income stretched even further.
Therefore, with the help of the public we have opened up our first client pantry. This is a free shop stocking nonperishable, household cleaning items, toiletries, and a fridge full of fresh produce. Our registered clients are invited down by appointment to complete a free shop. This gives our client independence of choosing items they prefer for their family as well as providing the shopping experience in a safe environment. This is a module we have been using for the past year without clothing bank and it has been a great success.
This press release is to advertise to the public that we are open for food donations as well as to reach out to those struggling families that may require our support. All support is subject to availability and referral from a front line professional such as a teacher, social working, medical worker or housing officer.
