Collect for Christmas 2019 is focussed on supporting vulnerable people affected by homelessness. Housing, fuel, food, and unemployment are major contributing factors to poverty in Leicester city and county. In Leicester many children are affected by poverty and not all are benefitting from support. This is why Leicestershire Cares alongside local businesses and schools have pledged to support three worthy projects on this years Collect 4 Christmas campaign.
- Help the Homeless Leicester– Starter packs for those moving into permanent accommodation – Bedroom, Kitchen and Toiletry packs
- Gift 4 Kids – Supporting children of families struggling in poverty and those using foodbanks – 0-18 year old toys
- Making Moves Project – Fundraising to support isolated and vulnerably housed young people to support with experiences and opportunities.
