THE SVP SUPPORTING THE BETHANY FOODBANK
The SVP is a Catholic charitable society whose aim is 'faith in action'. Our parish SVP group do daily deliveries of food & supplies to Food Banks, homeless shelters, as well as to drop in centres for asylum seekers & refugees. Due to the current situation, the main Food Bank that they work with are desperately short of provisions and are struggling to meet demand for the most deprived areas of Birmingham. They need urgent donations of food, cleaning products, toiletries and baby products on a large scale. Donations can be dropped off at local addresses for the SVP team to collect every Thursday.
