L&S Waste Management has joined forces with Asda to once again support vulnerable people across the region this Christmas with the supply of food parcels to Catherine Booth House.
Under the management of The Salvation Army, the Charity offers a unique temporary housing facility for venerable families in Portsmouth, including couples with children, single parent families and pregnant mothers.
Management and staff at the Fareham based waste firm have been shopping for essential food items, which they will distribute to those under the care of the Charity and that would otherwise go without this Christmas. The initiative is supported by Asda in Fareham, who have matched the donation with a cash contribution of £300.
L&S Waste Management Managing Director, Mick Balch said: ““This is the third year we have provided a helping hand and although it’s only a small token, we hope we can make a difference to people who might be struggling this Christmas.”
The L&S food parcels include festive treats, such as Christmas cakes and mince pies, along with other household basic supplies that many people in the UK take for granted.
Catherine Booth House Programme Coordinator, Vanessa Weeks, said: “We are hugely grateful for the continued support of local businesses like L&S Waste and Asda. Their donations make a big difference and through their generosity, the 45 families in our care across the region will have a brighter Christmas this year.”
