Advent Almsgiving 2015

North East Edinburgh Foodbank
During Lent 2015 St John’s Primary school collected and delivered dozens of crates of food to the North East Edinburgh Foodbank based in South Leith Parish Church.

During Advent we would like to once again support people in our community who are struggling to pay for essential weekly food items.

Pupil volunteers will go round classes each week from the end of November to the end of term and collect food donations. Staff volunteers will transport the donations to the foodbank for redistribution.

Although all foods are appreciated there are certain items which are particularly useful at this time.
These are UHT (long life) Fruit Juice, UHT milk (green and blue), Sugar, Sponge pudding, Tea Bags and Coffee.

Thank you for your continued support of this essential almsgiving.
