Last week we delivered some Christmas Gift Shoe-boxes to the Society of St James in Southampton.
The Society of St James are a Hampshire-based homelessness charity, providing accommodation and support to over 2500 people each year.
“We believe that everyone has a right to a home. We believe that people should be given the opportunity to develop the skills they need to lead a fulfilling life. We believe that everyone deserves not just a second chance, or a third chance, but as many chances as they need to change their lives for the better.”
The ReesLeisure enjoyed gathering together gifts including, toiletries, chocolates, books and scarfs. These shoe-boxes will be distributed to people facing homelessness in Southampton this Christmas.
Collecting the items and preparing the shoeboxes was really easy as we all chipped in and had fun wrapping up the boxes! It’s something we highly recommend doing as a family or an office next year!
