Sainsbury’s Food Bank Donation Drive for The Island, York

On Saturday 5 May, shoppers at Sainsbury’s Monks Cross were invited to find out more about our food bank during a donation drive. This also gave us the opportunity to share stories with Sainsbury’s customers about the impact their donations have on local children and their families who use our services.

During the day, we were kindly given over 280 items, which will be given to local vulnerable families who need it the most. We also raised an incredible £361.93 from our Tombola, which was a huge achievement. The money raised from the tombola will go towards helping the children and young people who use our services to enhance their mental, emotional and social well-being.

We’d like to thank the Sainsbury’s team at Monk’s Cross for their hospitality throughout the day as well as the customers who stopped to find out more about our work, got involved with our tombola and donated items towards our food bank. Your generosity is hugely appreciated.

If you would like to make a donation towards our food bank, then please email us at enquiries@theislandyork.org
