Twelve Weans of Christmas Appeal

With the backing from Elaine C. Smith OPFS has launched the “Twelve Weans of Christmas” Toy & Food Hamper Appeal 2017 and would like to ask for your support.

As we are sure you are aware, Christmas can be a stressful time for all of us, and giving children a happy Christmas by providing some presents, cosy clothes and a warm dinner puts even more pressure on families.  Over the last several years OPFS has seen a huge number of families contact us in financial crisis and this increases considerably at this time of the year.

Last year we were able to make Christmas special for over 300 single parent families across Glasgow and Lanarkshire living in poverty and would like to make this years’ wider national appeal to be just as successful.

We are hoping that you could possibly help us with donations of toys and /or warm clothing for children 0-16 years (please note that due to Health & Safety we can only accept toys that are new and in packaging).

We also distribute food parcels to families in need to make sure that children have hot meals over the festive period when school meals are not available. For this we would welcome any non-perishable food donations and toiletries.  We are hoping to begin to distribute all gifts and food on the week beginning 11th December.

Thank you in advance for your support, it is greatly appreciated by OPFS staff and the many single parent families we support.
