Helping the homeless
In December 2016 SA Law set up a food bank in the St Albans Office. All proceeds of the food bank were donated to three local homelessness charities.
The majority of the homeless charities locally are run entirely by volunteers and they rely solely on donations to be able to continue their vital work.
Through the food bank we have donated non-perishable food supplies to Centre 33, Herts Young Homeless and the St Albans Salvation Army.
Homelessness in St Albans is a bigger issue than most would presume it to be. In the first two quarters of 2016 over 300 applications for homeless status were made to the council.
We invited our neighbours, friends, clients and staff to get involved to donate suitable food items to ensure that together we could provide enough to get the charities through the busiest times expected through December, January and February and to provide the ingredients to cover approximately 500 meals.
Want to get involved?
The SA Law festive food bank is now closed, but if you would like to continue to support Centre 33
, The Salvation Army
or Herts Young Homeless
any donations of non-perishable food items or perhaps a few hours of your time volunteering would be gratefully received and appreciated. After all, just £1 worth of a weekly food shop could pay for up to 3 items. A little can go a long way. Please contact charities independently to find out how you can help.
