Green Park Day Nursery make festive donation to local people in need

Generous parents and practitioners from Green Park Day Nursery in Reading have made a donation of essential food items to The Salvation Army to help local people who need it most in the run up to Christmas with emergency food parcels.

Following a record-rise in demand for items at food banks across the country due to coronavirus, families and colleagues from the day nursery on South Oak Way kindly made socially-distanced contributions of items such as cereal, pasta, and tinned goods in an effort to keep the charity well-stocked in supplies for the festive period.

In a recent statement, The Salvation Army explained;

“At The Salvation Army we run food banks from our centres across the UK year-round, but as a result of the pandemic we have expanded them further to try and meet the increasing demand. We are using our local networks to reach people who can no longer feed themselves or their families and are cut off from other sources of support.”

Green Park Day Nursery Charity Representative, Hayley Scott explained;

“I have spent a lot of time volunteering with The Salvation Army so have seen first-hand the amazing impact that these donations can make to vulnerable people facing hardship. The charity provides a lifeline to so many people and we are very grateful to everyone for showing such generosity and embracing the season of goodwill.”

The Salvation Army is a worldwide Christian church and registered charity, which has been fighting against social inequality and transforming lives for over 150 years.
