Collecting Food Items For Local Food Bank
On 29th of May, members of our club took part together with members of Rotary Scheveningen in the fundraiser organized by Schappelijk.
The Social Shop Schappelijk offers extra help for the residents of Scheveningen, who find themselves in a delicate financial situation. Therefore, people who have insufficient income for meeting the basic needs and who appeal to the Food Bank in the Netherlands, receive a weekly food package as a help. However, Schappelijk does something extra and offers the possibility for these people to actually choose for themselves, what they want to ‘buy’.
Members of Rotaract Scheveningen, Rotary Scheveningen and Schappelijk were placed at three different supermarkets in Scheveningen. Throughout the day, with the help of residents, no less than 200 crates of non-perishable products were collected and donated!
We would like to thank everyone who took part in this activity and donated!
