Harvest has donated 175 activity bags for children to Thanet foodlink in June 2020, this is partly because it is a 5 week month for purposes of delivery. This is valued by parents and children, and by foodlink.
The bags are different from week to week, as families receive food bags more than once.
We continue to include in the bags - colouring pencils, pencils with erasers, sheets of coloured paper, plain paper, activity sheets. Plus the extras which includes balls, colouring masks, bubbles, bats and ball, outdoor games, cards, , reading books, playdough, stickers, colouring books, paint, soft toys etc.
This has been made possible by the generosity of Harvest and Harvest family and friends. Some providing cash, some knitting toys, making playdough, sewing fabric bags. Others donating coloured paper, glue, sellotape, colouring pencils, paints, balls, bats and balls, bubbles, masks, puzzles, stickers etc. All of which makes it possible to give these bags to struggling families.
A huge thank you on behalf of foodlink and the families.
The families that receive these bags are very grateful, some receive them with tears in their eyes… gifts they can give to their children.
If anyone wants to donate activities for children then please contact me, I’d be happy to collect.
With love and thanks
