Once again, Mrs Williams and her helpers from Oak house will be collecting food items to take to Shrewsbury Food Bank.
Shrewsbury Food Bank opened in 1993 and was the third foodbank to open in the country. The food bank is organised by 55 volunteers who also run 4 other community projects including support for parents and carers of young children in the Shrewsbury area, community cage football project and they also provide clothing and interview advice to job seekers, all free of charge.
Last year Corbet School students made an outstanding effort and donated several large boxes of food but we would like to beat that again this year! Currently 60 people per week rely on Shrewsbury Food Bank and they have given us a list of ‘most wanted’ items that would make a huge difference to someone in your local community this Christmas so please give if you can.
The donation box can be found in the foyer outside room 25 and the items include:
Milk (long life, semi skimmed), Sugar, dried spaghetti, Male grooming products (deodorant, shaving etc), fruit juice (long life), tin of ham or turkey, gravy, cranberry sauce, stuffing, carton of custard, tinned fruit salad, long life cream, mince pies, Christmas pudding, biscuits, chocolates, Christmas crackers.
In the new year we will be visited by the manager of the foodbank who will feed back on how our donations helped others over Christmas.
