Following the success of last years campaign, we are once again supporting The Salvation Army this Christmas with the charity’s local Present Appeal.
Shoppers are being encouraged to purchase an extra gift while they are out shopping to donate to a child, family or individual who are facing hardships this year.
Items on the present appeal list include toys from aged 0–11 years, toiletry gift sets for teens, non-perishable food items such as tinned goods, rice and pasta, as well as some festive sweet treats.
The Salvation Army Edmonton help over 250 people in the local community each year, whether it be a family struggling to feed their children or an older person suffering from loneliness and isolation.
Rebecca Bird, Retail Manager at Edmonton Green said: “As a shopping centre who puts the community at the heart of everything we do, we are trying to support as many local good causes as we can this winter and as always, we greatly appreciate the kindness and generosity of our shoppers.”
People can drop off their gift donations at the Edmonton Green Management Office, located on the upper floor of Market Square, Monday – Saturday between 9am – 5pm
The last day to drop off donations will be midday on December 15, 2021
If there is anyone needing the Salvation Army Edmonton’s help this Christmas, they are urged to get in touch via email Edmonton@salvationarmy.org.uk or telephone 0208 345 6687.
