Enniskillen Foodbank has set up a PayPal account for much needed donations to help those in need in the community.
The charity depends solely on kind donations from members of the public, and have set up the page to make it a bit easier to donate. The money will be used to help those in the community who may be struggling to make ends meet, and use the Foodbank as a vital lifeline.
Sharon West of the Enniskillen Foodbank told the Herald that all donations, no matter how small are appreciated at the Foodbank.
“Over the Christmas period and the snow, we have had to help so many more people than normal so our funds are low and our stock is low and we cannot run if we do not have the goods.
“A lot of people have said to us that they wanted to donate to us, but they might not have been able to give food so when someone asked us a while ago about making a donation we set up a PayPal. We will be able to go and buy items in bulk so we can stock up on the items that we need. It is just another way to help get some donations in, and we have had some donations come into us already which is brilliant. We really appreciate it and every little bit helps us,” said Sharon.
The Foodbank is situated at the Lakeyard Vineyard church, Cross Street, and is run by a team of hard working volunteers.
The Foodbank is always hoping to recruit new volunteers to help out at the centre and currently the Foodbank is in desperate need of coffee, tea, rice, tinned meat, tinned vegetables, long life milk and tinned fruit.
