Food Banks. Roadside Collections?
Over the last few years I have realised that it is quite difficult to volunteer for things in this PC age we live in. Rightly or wrongly disclosures seem to be needed for everything and one year when I volunteered to help the homeless at Xmas it was a case of 'no ta, we're fine'.
During all the lockdowns there have been many times I would like to donate food to banks but having no car temporarily it has been impossible. But last week working with my boss he stopped to pass the time of day car to car with a neighbour who was doing a tin collection in his street.
I felt this was a wonderful idea and if it was available in every street I am sure lots of people would give. Even one item close to sell by date from each home would fill the food banks. They could also drop off food parcels to those on a list as being in need.
I would definitely volunteer, would you?
