York Foodbank gratefully received a donation of crucial items from leading contractor GRAHAM, assisting with its work to provide emergency food for the most vulnerable and replenishing other essential supplies in the run up to Christmas.
First aid kits, toiletries and food were donated to the charity from funds raised by GRAHAM’s University of York site team, who are currently supporting the University’s Campus for the Future masterplan. The £130 million flagship scheme is delivering 1480-bed student accommodation scheduled to be completed for the 2022 academic year.
Stacie Moyle , GRAHAM University of York Office and Community Engagement Manager, said: “We were pleased to help this very deserving cause on the run up to Christmas and look forward to donating to the Foodbank again in the not too distant future.”
“GRAHAM is committed to supporting the local community and we are keen to encourage others to do the same. Now more than ever foodbanks need as many donations as possible and we hope that our contribution will encourage others to do the same, ensuring that we can all work together to help as many vulnerable people as possible across York.”
Adam Raffell, York Foodbank Manager said: “We were extremely grateful for the generous donation of food received from GRAHAM this Christmas. This pandemic is a time of unprecedented challenge for many people and, with further uncertainty expected in the months ahead, this gift of food is helping to ensure that no one need go hungry as we continue to pursue our ambition of ensuring that all in our community are afforded the basic dignity of access to life’s essentials.”
