PARCELS FOR THE YMCA, HIGHBRIDGE

 

As we were unable to fill our usual shoeboxes before Christmas, we decided to make up parcels for the people staying at the YMCA in Highbridge over Christmas. These adults have been referred to the YMCA from the Council, and have lost jobs and homes. The YMCA is endeavouring to get them somewhere to live to enable them to get a job.

 

Burnham-on-Sea’s ISO Penelope was extremely busy in the run up to Christmas. As due to CoVid restrictions, she has had to parcel up all the items donated by members on her own. President Rita and Penelope managed a shopping trip before Lockdown No 2 and Rita also helped in some of the parcel wrapping. Each collection of clothes and goodies were put in a cotton drawstring bag and then wrapped in Christmas paper and a card from the Club attached to each one.
