The current cost of living crisis is making the vital role food banks play in the local community even more crucial and here at Orthoplastics we wanted to do our bit to help two local food banks keep their shelves stocked this winter.
We launched a company-wide food drive from 23rd November to 2nd December to encourage employees to donate any unwanted food items such as tinned meat, soups, vegetables, beans and potatoes, rice, pasta, condiments and canned fruits.
Tote bags were placed at several key places within the premises to make it easy for employees to leave their donations and we are super proud of the efforts everyone has shown.
The results of our food drive have been overwhelmingly positive and will make a significant difference to our two chosen food banks this winter and the people within the local community that
rely on them.
Together, we have collected 742lb of food to be donated to the Trinity Baptist Church and The Hare & Hounds Pub Food Box on the Side, both of which do wonderful work in the local community to help those struggling with the cost of living.
The generosity shown by employees has been amazing and we hope that our donations will go a long way to help these two fantastic food banks over the winter. Well done to everyone who was involved.
