Asda Morley has made a festive food donation to support its local Salvation Army and make a difference in the community this Christmas.
Kind-hearted colleagues presented The Salvation Army in Morley with jam-packed Christmas hampers full of Asda’s Extra Special range including mince pies, Christmas pudding and other festive treats, as well as crackers and small gifts for patrons to enjoy over the festive season.
Maxine Green, Asda Morley’s community life champion, said: “We wanted to acknowledge the amazing work of The Salvation Army in the local community and spread some festive cheer by helping to make someone else’s Christmas that little bit better.”
Major Colin Stevens, at The Salvation Army Morley, said: “Our patrons are so grateful for the generous donation made by the store – it certainly put a smile on everyone’s face – and we’re looking forward to enjoying our festive goodies over the Christmas period!”
People can help The Salvation Army and the work they do in a number of ways.
Donating just £19 could help provide food and toys for a family who are facing hardship at Christmas, £45 could bring five homeless people in from the cold and £112 could help 20 older people, who are lonely, enjoy the festive season.
The Salvation Army offers a wide variety of services, not only in the community, but worldwide.
