Each year we provide Christmas hampers to those struggling in our community. We support families and individuals who are facing significant challenges, such as mental and physical health issues, family breakdown, domestic abuse and poverty. This year our help is needed more than ever! We will be providing hampers with all the food needed to celebrate Christmas - Turkey and all the trimmings, plum pudding, Christmas crackers and more all brilliantly sorted and packed by the staff and Tesco in Eastleigh. From a recent client survey 50% of respondents reported that they had eaten less fresh food during lockdown so we'll be making sure that our hampers will be packed with fresh items to provide good nutrition in the holidays. Not only do these hampers ensure that families have good food to eat but they also communicate in a very powerful way that they are not alone. If you are able to give that would be amazing!
Any funds raised in excess of the costs of providing hampers will be treated as general funds for ARK Eastleigh's ongoing work.
ARK Eastleigh serves the vulnerable and excluded in our community
through practical acts of kindness, befriending and informal advocacy.
We work in partnership with other local organisations to reduce social isolation and empower families and individuals to overcome the challenges they face.
