Update on the Gate Charity
Uptake for the Foodbank has more than doubled in recent weeks. Outlay for perishable foodstuffs has increased fourfold. A strict referral system is still in place so you can be sure that all those who benefit are genuinely in need.
Food items can be dropped off at the Gate Centre in Alloa, Mon-Fri 10am-3pm or at the permanent trolleys in all local supermarkets.
Cash donations can also be made and are regarded as a necessity. You can donate online or at the Centre. Please note, cheques must be made payable to The Gate Charity.
The Gate also appreciates used clothing, footwear, small household items and toiletries which are distributed via The Soup Pot and Home Starter Pack projects.
All donations are very gratefully received.
Together, during our recent "virtual" Christian Aid Week, we have raised an amazing £2,888. Thank you. (£2,375 plus £513 in Gift Aid)
For over seventy years, Christian Aid has been standing with the poorest of our neighbours, with people of all faiths and none, to stand up for dignity, equality and justice.
Through your generous "acts of kindness", Christian Aid will reach out and protect your neighbours near and far, achieving a vision for a new world that is transformed by an end to poverty.
In this time of global crisis, you have reached out to communities who have the least resources to respond to the Corona Virus pandemic - no safe water for drinking or washing and little public health provision of any kind.
You have really made a difference. THANK YOU
