Not only does S2S Group inspire to make a positive impact on our environment, but it is also dedicated to supporting the well-being of the community too. S2S Group’s employees came up with the idea to run a winter foodbank campaign. This campaign consisted of donating to our 3 chosen charities throughout the months of October, November, and December with a goal to donate a minimum of 15kg of food, clothing, and toiletries to each charity.
Our chosen foodbanks are:
- The Archer Project – donated 20kg
- YWCA Yorkshire – donated 31kg
- Rotherham Foodbank – The Trussell Trust – donated 20kg
Total collected for local foodbanks
In total S2S Group donated 71kg to the 3 chosen foodbanks, exceeding our goal every month. This campaign stems from the 2021 foodbank donation where S2S Group donated 4 large shopping bags full of toiletries and non-perishable foods to the St.Saviour’s Church, High Green.
Helping to support the amazing work done by local charities
S2S Group’s staff members got the opportunity to talk to the amazing staff and volunteers at each foodbank and learn how much hard work they put in to supporting the community. Not only do these foodbanks provide and serve food and food parcels but they also provide further support by providing a facility for people to visit to build a community for people to create friendships, educate others on careers, and provide financial advice, guidance, and support.
Winter has been highlighted as the highest likely time for the public to struggle with both food and financial worries, especially with the cost of living crisis. Therefore, S2S Group chose October, November, and December as target months to donate to these local foodbanks.
