Community Kindness Kits Wave 4 Good Friday .. such a very good day
You don’t just put the good into Friday .. you are putting it into every day, week after week over the last four for those in our community who are so very vulnerable during this Coronavirus crisis.
You just keep giving and giving, not only making this Community Kindness Kit Outreach project such a success but making such an enormous difference to those of our friends and neighbours who are so very vulnerable and deserving of care and kindness.
We are so proud of you all and so very proud to be part of this incredible community care outreach project. It is you, each and every one of you that contribute who are making it happen through your continuous compassion, donations and willingness to volunteer.
This week we distributed 27 Kindness Kits (the schools are closed) but school meal shopping vouchers have been distributed to support vulnerable families over Easter and we will be picking up our kindness outreach to our 23 families in need with extra goodies set aside with the help of the dedicated teaching staff at our local schools after the Easter Break.
Each Friday as the Community Kindness Kits leave the building in the safe hands of the Kindness Volunteers we step back and look at the remaining donations and wonder if we can do it all again for another week, if we will have enough to keep this going .. and the answer from you all is always a resounding yes.
Thank you so very much from those of our residents who are not only so vulnerable but are also so overwhelmed by your kindness and so overcome by your thoughtfulness.
Special thanks this week to the residents of Martindale Iver Heath & Chequers Orchard Iver whose generosity made such a difference. To Manish and Julia for delivering chocolate and treats galore which will go such a long way towards raising spirits. To the amazing staff at Royal Mail Langley for yet another boot full of long life foodstuffs which we have shared with our friends at Slough Outreach. To Helen, Alison, Melissa, Jilly, Julia, Valerie, Tacha, Wendy B, Bhabinder, Paul and especially Sally our greatest community kindness champion we send our heartfelt thanks and lasting admiration. We applaud you one and all 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
We have one special request this week for a very vulnerable lady who is a Coeliac and under extreme financial distress. If anyone could donate gluten free products to help her through this very difficult time it would make such a difference to her wellbeing both physically and emotionally, please email Lorraine at commsC19@iverparishcouncil.gov.uk if you can help in any way.
We are also running low on the following items:
Preserves .. jam etc.,
We welcome bread which we can freeze to preserve shelf life, and fresh fruit and vegetables, yoghurt and cheese (with shelf life) all of which we can accept same day and distribute on Fridays only.
We are open Monday (including Bank Holiday Monday) from 12 noon until 4pm to accept donations and Friday 11am to 2pm.
Our friends at Costcutter Richings Park and the Co-ops at Iver and Iver Heath also accept donations during opening hours.
Thank you for everything. Please do try and keep this going it’s making such a difference to those so much in need of support and kindness during these worrying times.
