This Appeal supports local families in need facing food poverty especially at Christmas time. Our aim is to put together as many food hampers as possible to donate to families in local areas to make their Christmas that little bit easier. We are trying to raise between £250- £1000 to enable us to gather resources and food to create as many hampers as we can.
We are the 'Stand up For Social Work' Society. We are a group of Social Work students from Ulster University Magee who want to give what we can back to our community. We are a mixture of ages, gender, background, cultures and personalities all with one aim!
There are hundreds of local families living in poverty and worry daily about not being able to feed their family. The majority of us are very lucky not to know or understand how this must feel for these families.
Christmas time is a time of celebration filled with family, food and gifts. Isn't it?......
Imagine your Christmas being a time of pressure, stress and worry of how you are going to feed your family from one day to the next. We understand that this is not only a worry for families at Christmas time and it can be a daily struggle, however we want to be able to embrace the gift of giving and help these families have one less worry this Christmas.
As social work students we have gained an understanding and knowledge of the challenges and increasing needs families face in today's society. This is happening in our local communities with families living just down the street or around the corner, this is not just a government problem, it is a community problem, it is a problem for us all. That is why we think it so important to get this message out there and help raise awareness of the increasing needs and the issue of food poverty.
By contributing to this appeal you will be helping those most in need directly. You will be helping to provide breakfast for many children on Christmas morning, you will be giving families the opportunity to enjoy a Boxing Day meal together and you will be contributing to making Christmas a little less stressful for these families. This is important to us and we hope it is important to you too!
