"We were delighted to be chosen by That's a Wrap as one of their beneficiaries over the festive period.
That's a Wrap kindly donated 50 toys to various age groups which were distributed before Christmas to parents/guardians of children who visited the food bank on the 16th and 23rd of December.
On average, 25 families p/week visit our food bank. In December that number increases to about 40. Many of whom are are struggling to meet their month to month let alone buying Christmas presents for their families and friends. That's a Wrap helped us by helping those in need and that is our sole purpose.
We were grateful to be integrated with the project after one of our volunteers participated in the wrapping event for the very presents that were distributed at the food bank.
Feltham Food Bank looks forward to future participation with That's A Wrap after their excellent Toy Appeal in 2018."
