HUGGARD CAN NO LONGER ACCEPT CLOTHING DONATIONS FROM 5.00PM MONDAY 14TH DECEMBER. This will be reviewed in February 2016.
Due to a fantastic response to our Call-Outs and the continued generosity of individuals and groups supporting Huggard – we reluctantly need to put the breaks on clothing donations and we are sorry for any inconvenience this causes you.
Our basement storage area is full to overflowing. Until groups of student volunteers can sort through and categorise these gifts we have no space left.
HUGGARD WILL STILL BE ACCEPTING SCARVES, SOCKS, HATS, TOILETRIES, SANITARY PRODUCTS, WATERPROOFS, DISPOSABLE RAZORS, DEODERANT, UNDERPANTS, TOWELS AND ANY STOCKING (SWEETS, BUSCUITS, NUTS, CHOCOLATE etc.) FILLERS TO MAKE OUR CLIENTS XMAS EVEN MORE MEMORABLE.
THERE WILL STILL BE CALL-OUTS FOR OTHER SPECIFIC ITEMS IF NECESSARY.
Since we opened up our day centre as a secondary (emergency overnight stay) EOS unit – doubling our nightly intake to as many as 40+, the above consumables have produced a huge nightly demand that is always difficult to fullfil.
Thank you for all of your much appreciated support, have a great Xmas and New Year from all Staff, Volunteers and Clients of Huggard XX
