Merton Giving Week 2020. Help local people experiencing Food Insecurity

Help Support local people experiencing Food Insecurity
We’ve witnessed such inspiring acts of kindness during the pandemic and, in the run up to the festive season, we’d like to build on this heart-warming community spirit to continue to make a positive difference.  Our focus for this year’s campaign is to support charities who help those in our community who are experiencing food insecurity. The demand for food during the pandemic has escalated sharply with people looking for help to feed their families, including those that cannot access food or cannot afford food.  

There are two simple ways to support this year’s campaign:

‘Food For All’ - You can make a donation to our fundraising campaign here to help fight hunger in our community. All donations will go to the Merton Giving Coronavirus Fund - Response, Resilience and Recovery - which will provide financial assistance to charities working locally to help support people experiencing food insecurity.

Businesses are invited to run their own fundraising activity and are able to set up a bespoke fundraising page connected to the campaign. We're delighted that Chamber members Peacock and Co are again generously supporting the campaign through will writing activity.

‘A Gift For All’
Donate a Festive shoe-box ‘Hamper’ & brighten someone’s day
Merton Giving is teaming up with other charitable organisations in the borough to encourage people to make and donate a Festive shoe-box hamper to residents in need to help make their lives a little brighter. Organisations including Sustainable Merton, Wimbledon Guild, Polish Family, Commonside Trust, Friends of St Heliers, St John’s Church High Path and Merton Council are on-board offering donation drop off points and/or to distribute hampers to residents in need. We'd love you to get involved. We'll be sharing more information on how to make and donate a Festive shoe-box hamper over the next few days.
