Write this date down. Agents Giving Day this year, where you can support the local food bank effort and help combat poverty in your local communities, will be held on October 22nd.
UK property industry charity, Agents Giving, is celebrating its continued support of The Trussell Trust and local food bank centres with a nationwide campaign to celebrate Agents Giving Day on 22nd October 2020. The aim is to encourage all agents and suppliers to support their local food banks by donating a food parcel to help combat poverty.
Agents Giving are asking for your help to tackle ongoing hunger in local communities by preparing a simple food parcel of items to donate to your local food bank to help with the supplies they so desperately need at this current time. Please check with your food bank the items they are in most need of, collect them up and make the donation at a social distancing drop off point.
Your office can collect food donations from your area encouraging the wider community to also take part and donate. You can also contribute by purchasing and donating items to your local food bank via your local supermarket collection bin, just a couple of items will help make a big difference to the ongoing need for emergency food in local communities, especially during these difficult times.
Last year Agents Giving Day saw over 22,000 food items collected and this year we want to beat that figure. You can find the Agents Giving Day Toolkit on the website for all you need to be part of this national food drive: https://agentsgiving.org/toolkit/
Michael Stoop, Agents Giving Chairman, says: “We are encouraging everyone to support their local food banks this Agents Giving Day, 22nd October 2020. By simply collecting up and donating a food parcel it can help make such a difference to those living and going hungry in our local communities."
