Independent janitorial distribution network, Jangro, is supporting The Trussell Trust as its chosen charity this year.
All 47 members in its network have started collecting foods and other essentials and have been dropping them off to their local food banks across the country.
As well as organising food collections, Jangro will also be donating any monies raised from fundraising events throughout the year, such as its regular supplier and member days. So far, the Jangro membership has already raised over £3,000.
The Trussell Trust is a worthy charity that supports a nationwide network of food banks. Together they provide emergency food and support to people locked in poverty. Jangro shares its vision for a UK without the need for food banks; for a just, compassionate future, where no one should have to use one to get by.
Jo Gilliard, CEO at Jangro, commented: “At Jangro, we take our social responsibility seriously and believe in giving back to the communities in which we operate. At a time when the true cost of living is soaring, we hope our contributions will help families get by that little bit easier.”
Last year, Jangro achieved its fundraising goal, raising a huge £100,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support to help them support people living with cancer.
