To celebrate the true meaning of Christmas, Crossfield has been collecting donations of food and toiletries for local causes, most recently for guests at the Catholic Church of St Vincent de Paul.
The church is located in the Baltic Triangle area of the city, close by to The Vaults site, where Crossfield Construction is currently delivering 62 new build apartments for housing provider, Torus.
During the build, our team on site have built a rapport with the church, who host food pantry sessions for guests on behalf of Micah Liverpool. Micah hand out over 800 food parcels per month and as an independent food bank, rely on the kindness of others. For the festive season, there was a specific request for selection boxes, so Crossfield set out to collect at least 200 of these for local children.
Between our team members, we managed to collect a total of 320 selection boxes, as well as five boxes of long-life food items and five large bags full of toiletries. Peter Robinson, Site Manager at The Vaults, took the collection to the church yesterday who were equally thrilled with the donations.
Paul O’Brien, Executive Director at Micah said: “Warmest thanks on behalf of the Micah Trustees for your recent donation of food items – these do wonders to help us support local residents and families. We so appreciate having friendly neighbours, and the generosity of everyone at Crossfield Construction who have supported our work.
“Now more than ever, we need donations to help our most vulnerable guests in these unprecedented times. Your donation will help others who are in difficult situations.”
All of Crossfield’s sites coordinate foodbank collections on a regular basis and will continue such contributions into 2021, providing support all year round for those local to our projects who are most in need.
