The Rita Project Christmas Campaign 2020
Updated: Nov 18, 2020
Every year, The Rita Project runs a Christmas campaign to support local people. Throughout 2020, we have seen to dramatic increase in demand on the Seahaven Food bank and wanted to support their work to provide parcels for families this Christmas.
The Seahaven Food Bank provides a food parcel delivery service to residents of Newhaven and surrounding area and to residents of Peacehaven and Telscombe. Prior to lockdown, they were distributing an average of 30 parcels a week, this has now risen to 180.
The food bank has recognised a gap in donations of toiletries and has asked The Rita Project to help. We have committed to creating toiletry packs for 100 local families with some extra treats for the children.
The packs will include;
Shampoo and conditioner
Kids shower gel
We're also requesting women’s sanitary products that will be donated to the food bank.
Just as the foodbank asked for our support, we are asking for yours. Here’s some ways you could help this Christmas and help us reach our goal;
1. Share this page on social media and help us generate more donations
2. Purchase an item or two from the wish list
Thank you in advance for your support.
