This Saturday, ahead of the visit of Aberdeen, Hibernian Football Club will be hosting a foodbank collection in partnership with the team at Helping Hands.
Helping Hands are committed to ensuring that the items collected will get to those who need it most at a difficult time of the year for so many in the local community.
The volunteers will be out in force from 12pm on Saturday, right through until kick-off.
If you can’t make it along on the day but would still like to help, our Clubstore will act as a drop-off point all this week.
Recommended items include milk (UHT or powdered), sugar, cartons of juice, canned soup, pasta sauces, canned tomatoes, canned rice pudding, teabags, instant coffee, instant mash potato, rice, pasta, canned fish and meat, canned fruit, jam, biscuits and snack bars.
Hibernian Head Coach Jack Ross has praised the efforts of those involved and said: “It’s tremendous that we have a group of supporters doing this valuable work.
“I’d urge all fans coming to the game to help make sure the collection organised by Helping Hands is a great success.”
Helping Hands will also accept donations towards their Toys For Kids initiative and you can find more details on their various activities here.
