Hewett’s once again pledge their support to local Foodbanks



 

Hewett Recruitment have once again pledged their full support this Christmas with a Foodbank collection initiative aimed at helping the local communities of Worcestershire who have fallen on hard times.

After an overwhelming response of donations from Hewett Recruitment Clients and Delegates who attended last year’s HR Professionals Conference, in partnership with Herefordshire & Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce. Hewett Recruitment are hoping to repeat the same success and support the local community Foodbanks of Worcestershire with a large scale collection for Christmas 2017.

The local Foodbanks of Kidderminster and Worcester support those who have been identified by Care Professionals as ‘in crisis’ and are issued with a Foodbank voucher which can be exchanged for three days’ supply of emergency food.

Startling statistics from the Kidderminster Foodbank at Baxter Church Hall show that 2,766 people received emergency food vouchers last year whilst Worcester Foodbank based in Lowesmoor Wharf helped 5,308. With 1 in 5 of the UK population now living below the poverty line this surely highlights the freighting reality that many of us are facing on a day to day basis in 2017.

The foodbanks rely on goodwill and support amongst its communities and have outlined the items needed which can be found on the website:https://www.trusselltrust.org/

If you would like to join our Foodbank collection please feel free to drop any donations into our offices in either Worcester or Kidderminster where we have a collection points available. Hewett Recruitment staff will be visiting clients and partners during December and collecting any donations from those who have chosen to join our Foodbank 2017 initiative
