Loaves and Fishes

For a number of years now, we have been supporting the Loaves and Fishes charity, based in East Kilbride, which gives support to homeless and vulnerable folk and families in East Kilbride and Glasgow. This is mainly in the form of food donations - dried or tinned, which can be left in the church vestibule.

Our thanks go to all who have given support in the past and we would appeal to those in our new Trinity congregation to help the volunteers in this charity to keep on doing the work which, sadly, is still so badly needed. An outline, provided by the charity, of the work that they do, is appended below.

Please consider giving help in any way you feel you can, and please remember in your prayers the organisation's team of volunteers and also the many, many men, women and children who are still in need of our love, care and support.

Collection on behalf of Loaves and Fishes (Scottish Charity No 009413)

WHO ARE WE?
Loaves & Fishes became a registered Charity in June 1989 comprising of Christians from a variety of different Churches.
Today, we provide a Foodbank in East Kilbride as well as a Hot Meal Service in Renfield St.Stephens Church in Glasgow on a Monday and Thursday evening.
Our main remit is to feed and clothe people who are homeless or who find themselves in dire situations.
All our workers are volunteers.

WHO DO WE HELP?
Many of the people we serve do not know when they will next eat or where they will sleep that night. Some are addicted to drugs or alcohol or are women caught in the world of prostitution.
Some people simply rely on us because traditional support systems are not working for them. They may come from broken homes, have suffered an illness that prevents them from working, be battling debt or are just struggling to cope with daily life.

HOW CAN WE HELP?
With your support, we can continue our mission to make a difference and provide hope for the most vulnerable people in our community.
Suggested items that could be passed on to help with our work;

Tinned Food
Tea, Coffee, Sugar
Toiletries (soap, toothpaste)
Ladies Hygiene products
Sleeping bags, Warm Blankets
Hats, Scarves, Gloves

Everything we receive we give away for free.
