Working Together on Christmas Giving
FIND (Families in Need), a charity run by volunteers to provide free food parcels and personal care items to help people get through a crisis, work with referral charities each year to ensure that their Christmas food hampers are just what our service users need.
As one of FIND’s referral agencies, ACT’s team are asked to fill in a referral form for each of our service users that would benefit from a hamper this Christmas. We include the names of any children or dependants and FIND then include a small gift for each child.
Once our referrals have been fulfilled at FIND, they are then delivered to our offices; our team then, in turn, deliver them to each of their service users. Hampers usually include treats like a box of biscuits / Christmas pudding – it’s those small things that can help a family in crisis through the Christmas period. Thanks to the team at FIND and thanks to our project teams.
A very Merry Christmas to you all from the whole team at ACT
