Charity collection in February…..

Harriers and KHIST are teaming up during the month of February to help collect items for vulnerable members of the local community.
The club and the Trust will be working collaboratively with local charities and organisations to help provide those in need with some essential items to make their lives more comfortable – and Harriers fans can play a big part in making this a huge success.
Supporters are asked to dig deep to see if they have any of the following unwanted items that they are prepared to donate:
– Tents, new and used
– Sleeping bags, blankets, pillows and bedding
– Men and women’s toiletries
– Winter coats for men and women and other heavy clothing
At the end of the month the collaborative items will be donated to local charities including:
– Wyre Forest Night Stop, who provide overnight accommodation
– Axis, who provide people with a gateway back into housing
– St Basils, who arrange housing for young people without homes
– Kidderminster Women’s Refuge
Other unwanted items will be gladly not listed above will still be gladly accepted, with those items to be donated to Far Forest Dog Rescue who will be able to utilise them.
We would only ask please that ALL donated items be suitably bagged.
HOW AND WHEN TO GET INVOLVED:
We’re asking for donations to be made, if possible, at February’s home game against Harrogate Town on Saturday, 17th, where donation trolleys will be made available at locations throughout the ground.
Donations will be accepted on other days during February – people can leave bagged items with a member of Harriers Arms staff after 5pm. Please do not take donations to the Arms on the day of the game.
Dave Mole, who has organised many similar projects in the past, said: “We are very grateful for any donations people can make as they are items that can make a real, practical difference to those who need them.
“The Club and KHIST are working closely together on this as it is something everyone feels very strongly about, and we must thank Dave Griffin at Quads and Castles in Kidderminster for offering to deliver the donations to the local charities – something he does on a regular basis.”
Everyone involved with the collection initiative is also grateful to John Davies and Hire-It! Kidderminster who have agreed to help support the effort.
