Weʼre raising £750 to help fund more food parcels for local families in the Park Street community in need during the pandemic

Park Street Village, St Albans, UK

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.

Originally we started our Food Drive in March 2020 when we realised the extent of the need of more fundraising, and subsequently we raised £830 on our JustGiving page, and hundreds more from bake sales, stands and individual donations! (See highlights from our original campaign here .)

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.

We are extremely grateful to local people who regularly donate goods and money to support our 18 families. Wenzel's have also been extremely generous with their donations each week, but money's still needed to fill the bags with nutritious food and necessities. 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.Placeholder for info here
