In 2017 we ran our first Advent Santa Sack Foodbank Appeal at St. Cross to make sure each of our Foodbank Families, who we had been supporting since our Foodbank opened in May, were given a little extra something to make their Christmas special and the campaign was a huge success making our families Christmases brighter!! This year we want to do it all again and we need your help!!!
We hope to give each family a special Santa Sack when they collect their last Foodbank packages before Christmas so throughout December we are inviting our congregation and community to join in a 'Reverse Advent Calendar'-style Appeal to make sure we have plenty of little treats and presents to go in the Sacks so none of our families feel like Father Christmas has forgotten them!!
We know not everyone can get out to the shops or drop things off at church, though, so if you would like to help us you can donate here and we will use your money to make the Santa Sacks special!!
If you would like to read more about our Foodbank you can here and you can read more about the Advent Santa Sack Appeal here! You can even join our Fb community on our Event Page where we will be sharing reminders, ideas and inspiration throughout December!!
Thank you for helping us spread a little Festive Cheer to our Foodbank Families this Christmas!!!
