Big Hearts Foodbank Collection – 16th September, 12.30pm – 3pm
Our annual foodbank collection in aid of Community One Stop Shop, the local foodbank in Broomhouse, will take place on Saturday 16th September prior to the Hearts vs Aberdeen game.
Big Hearts, Jambos Kickback and Heart of Midlothian are once again joining forces to collect donations of non-perishable food items on the day.
The main drop-off points will be at the Foundation Plaza (McLeod Street) and Wheatfield Street. Big Hearts and Community One Stop Shop Volunteers will be on hand from 12.30pm until kick-off at 3pm. Items urgently needed: tinned items (meals, fruits, vegetables and puddings) pasta sauce and curry sauce.
Community One Stop Shop has seen a 40% increase in usage since 2022, due to the impact of the cost of living crisis and we encourage all Hearts fans to get involved and help hundreds of local families who will struggle to get essential food supplies over the coming months.
A massive thank you goes to Jambos Kickback, who are once again covering all service fees, Hearts supporters can also donate online on this link until 30th September. This means 100% of every pound raised will enable the foodbank to buy additional supplies including fresh fruits and bread.
Any donation will make such a big difference to local families in crisis. A huge thank you in advance for your support!
