Crawley Open House is a homeless charity that provides support and services for those suffering the effects of homelessness, unemployment, loneliness, discrimination or other forms of social exclusion within our local area.
We're pleased to be able to offer a little help to this charity. We've started contributing again to a food bank and are touched by the generosity of our team who have already overfilled a number of boxes.
Charities have been hit hard over the last 18 months and continue to feel the effects of the Covid pandemic. As a result of the pandemic, charities like Crawley Open House had to stop people from donating food.
Many companies who previously arranged corporate collections of food and essentials are not yet completely back in their offices and individual donors have been mindful of Covid restrictions. The impact of this means that Crawley Open House is quite short of ingredients for their hostel kitchen and items for the 15-20 crisis food parcels that are distributed every day.
The items they are especially short of are:
• tinned meat and fish
• tinned fruit and vegetables
• bottles of squash
• long-life milk
• pasta sauces
