Food bank collection comes up with the goods

Genesis staff 'shared the love' with a Valentine's-themed foodbank collection last week.

The seasonal donations drive yielded a bumper crop of non-perishable goods and toiletries collected at our Camden head office, Atelier House.  On Thursday (16 February), staff from Genesis and our repairs and maintenance provider Kier took the items – which amounted to several boxes – to the local foodbank in Camden ready for distribution to local people in need.

This month’s collection was again generously supported by the local Waitrose store, which supplied further items for donation.

David Short, Financial Inclusion Officer at Genesis Housing Association, said: “Massive thanks to everyone at Genesis and Kier who supported the initiative. The response was phenomenal.  Donations to foodbanks often tail off after Christmas, but staff were really generous and had taken note of what items were particularly needed.”
