Charity Collection June 4th

May 14, 2020By

There’s never been a time where cleaning has been more important or more prominent in everyone’s day to day. People are using the time to clean up their wardrobes, sheds, and cupboards. 

At times like this, charities are often hit hardest as people understandably aim to cut back their outgoings in order to provide for themselves and families. But fortunately, there are ways people can still support others.

If your children are home more than ever before, you’re probably finding that there are only some toys or games they play with. Or if you’re Spring cleaning your wardrobe, donations of good quality clothes are perfect to donate to charities through Latvia.

So, if you’re finding cupboards are being rearranged, laundry rooms or kitchens are being sorted out, or sheds are being decluttered, think of how your old items may be treasure for someone else. Because the charity organisations still continue to save lives and are in need of the support of those.

When is the Charity Drive

Donate your gently used clothes, kitchen items, smaller household utensils, towels, toys, etc. to those in need.
