FILLING RUCKSACKS FOR THE HOMELESS
Posted By hvrc.net_admin
During the worst of the pandemic government action ensured that street homeless people had a roof over their head. But this was a one-off and homeless people are now back on our streets. In response, St Albans Emmaus, supported by HACRO and Harpenden Village Rotary Club, are collecting survival basics to enable street homeless people to cope. These are packed into rucksacks to make them easy for people to carry. Our club members have been collecting sleeping bags, thermal clothing, gloves, hats, scarves, socks, toothbrushes, toothpaste, safety razors, soap and dry foods – and of course rucksacks – to pass to Emmaus in St Albans for distribution to those in need.
