Santa's Sack Christmas Appeal
Help support local families in need by donating essential toiletries.
This Christmas is going to be a difficult time for many local families. The ongoing effects of the pandemic, and increases in the cost of living are affecting us all, but for vulnerable families already struggling, the additional pressure is pushing more and more people into poverty.
Here at Baby Bank Network we see the reality of this every day. We are receiving increasing numbers of referrals and trying our best to keep up with the demand! We experienced our busiest ever week recently - with 76 families desperately needing support to meet the needs of their children. In October we received 192 referrals, an increase from 131 compared to 2021.
A huge thank you in advance for all your support. Together we can make a real difference to the lives of some of the most vulnerable families in Bristol.
Donate a virtual sack of toiletries
Donate a sack (or bag or box) of toiletries
Here at the Baby Bank Network we give out on average 1000 toiletry bundles each year - for babies and mothers. Although we receive donations of toiletries, to keep up with the demand we also have to buy them. By donating toiletries directly to us, this means money raised can be spent on other costs and helping more families in need.
Please see below for toiletries we need, we can only take items listed. You can also save, share and print this poster.
Donate toiletries at one of our donation points in Bristol, or book a time to drop them at our warehouse by 16th December. If you have any queries regarding donations please contact us at email@example.com
Get your local school, nursery, faith group or your colleagues involved and fill a Santa’s Sack (or box or bag) with toiletries to donate! Don’t forget to share your updates with us on social media!
