D&G Kids Company Day 1st December 2011

Monday, November 14, 2011 by Douglas And Gordon

 

Help us make a difference when we come knocking on 1st December

We will be visiting every street in the D&G area, so please start putting your nonperishable food aside now and our teams will come around to collect it. If you’re not in on the day you can drop any donations off at your local D&G office.

We will be operating a skeleton staff all day but we’re sure our usual service won’t be too hampered, and after all it is for a very good cause.

Last year we helped Kids Company to ensure that 600 food hampers were hand delivered to families most in need over the Christmas period. By the end of a long and very cold day, we achieved the following:

- 7 tonnes of food
- 343 full removal boxes
- 18,500 individual items of food
- 1,825 brand new toys
- £8,277 in donations

We would greatly appreciate your help in beating that magnificent effort this year.
