Hello again! Hope you’re keeping well.
So, what have we been up to in the last week or so?
TRJFPBrum volunteers are still really busy, working 7 days a week intercepting and sorting food for distribution, in conjunction with The Active Wellbeing Society, Fareshare, Birmingham City Council and many other organisations to get food and supplies to the people who need them.
You can request support by clicking the button below and leaving your details on the form. You do not have to be a designated ‘vulnerable’ person to access the help available, the service is for everyone!
Alternatively, if you are able to get out and about, we’re distributing food at various locations and times throughout the week – check here for details.
TRJFPBrum have helped distribute food to over 13,000 people since the 20th March.
We were featured in the Birmingham Mail. Liam Byrne MP has also been tweeting about what we’ve been doing, you can watch this video he made of TAWS CEO Karen Creavin here:
If you want to help us, we’re currently looking for donations of carrier bags and egg boxes – ideally dropped off at Ladywood Community Centre (click here for full address and map) between 9am and 4pm, or if that’s not possible, to any of the locations we’re distributing food, (listed here).
If you’re able to volunteer your time, you can:
- Offer support via phone to those self isolating
- Help with packing
- Offer resources and activities for home educating, or DBS checked child care to families
- Distribute or store food collected
- Collect groceries, prescriptions etc
- Translation and language skills to help communications
- Specialised medical and mental health support
- Pet walking
… or any other ideas you have to help Birmingham citizens in need by clicking the button below and leaving your details.
Thank you to everyone who is working so hard across the city. We’re so proud to be able to do our bit to help with this essential work! Stay Safe!
