Co-op stores in Grantham support Salvation Army by collecting warm clothing for the homeless


By Grantham Reporter


Co-op food stores in Grantham have joined forces with the Salvation Army in a bid to wrap up the homeless this winter.

The Co-op is calling for donations of warm clothing such as coats, gloves, hats and scarves which can be donated up until December 22 and dropped off at its food stores in time for Christmas.

Items donated at stores will be collected by the Co-op’s Logistic team and distributed to the charity.

Co-op stores can be found in Princess Drive and Dysart Road, Grantham.

Shaun Doran, national contracts manager, Co-op Logistics, said: “The weather presents many challenges for the homeless, whatever the season, but especially during these colder, winter, months. Those sleeping rough – for whatever reason – face many challenges and need access to vital support and services.

"Connecting communities and bringing people together is at the heart of the Co-op, and a donation can help to make a difference to those in our community who are desperately in need of support through both practical help and guidance towards accessing the right support and services.

"We are really grateful for the generous support – it is amazing what we can achieve when we work together and, every donation, no matter how small, will add up to make a big difference. Helping to let vulnerable people know that they are not alone, and that someone is thinking of them, this Christmastime.”
