Weʼre raising £1,000 to Provide food for families in need in our community while we're in the midst of a pandemic

Park Street St Albans

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

Story

No family should go without food during the coronavirus pandemic, but sadly, job losses have made families more vulnerable during this unprecedented time. Park Street Residents Association aims to lessen the burden by distributing food parcels to families most in need.

We're working with the local schools How Wood Primary School and Nursery and Park Street Primary Schools to identify those families feeling the pinch, and ensuring those who need it most get help. The schools' heads know the community well, and are the most informed as to who's suffering. We respect their expertise. Right now we're supplying 14 families each week, but we believe that number will increase by summer.

We've got £150 left for purchasing food and necessities, but it will run out after our next weekly shopping trip. Currently local hero Twinsco has a food donation point where generous residents have contributed vital food and supplies, and local baking heroes Wenzel's provides fresh baked bread and other baked goods, which supplement our weekly parcels, but money is needed to fill each bag.

Please donate what money you can, to help your neighbours through this difficult time. Your generosity will help families get through this.

If you're unable to donate through this page, please message me to pay offline.

    We're just £250 away from our online goal. This week, Joy's been busy preparing food parcels--15, for our local families with money raised by this page, and supplemented by food donations left at our drop off box at local Twinsco. Here's a photo of her hard work, taken before adding the weekly donation of baked goods from Kris and Wenzel Bakers. She's loaded the bags with essential items as well as food suitable for the whole family. Please forward this, share, and help keep the word out. And thank you for your generous support.

    Photo taken at Barbara Vernon's cake sale on Saturday to benefit our food drive. The cakes sold out within the first hour of a blustery day, and people came out in spite of the weather to support our fundraiser. So if you can't donate online, there's other ways to help feed our families, such as buying essentials at Twinsco and leaving at our distribution point, or stopping at Barbara's when she's having a cake sale. Items needed: Babybel cheese snacks, pasta hoops and tinned macaroni cheese, toilet & kitchen roll, hand sanitiser. Thanks!

    Hello, I've been busy this week, sorting food for the parcels, paid for by our kind donors here and in person, and of course from the food point drop off at Twinsco. Here's what my office looked like. As you can see, there's lots of food to be shared. Earlier today, Barbara Vernon hosted another bake sale in the Village, selling out of her delicious goodies in just an hour. Thanks to Barbara for her Village spirit, and of course, thanks to YOU. Please share our fundraiser link to everybody you know. With thanks, Joy & the PSRA
