Requests update

Thank you so much for your donations of food and toiletries over the last week. At the moment we would appreciate in particular the following items:
  • ANY food that can be eaten without heating
  • tinned meat
  • tinned vegetables (but we have plenty of tinned tomatoes at the moment)
  • pasta sauces
  • pot noodles
  • cereals, sugar (small packets of either)
  • shower gel, deodorants, shampoo

Each item does make a difference, and to illustrate this, below is the text of a letter received at the Vineyard Centre recently from Suffolk Constabulary Victim Care Centre:

Dear Sir/madam

Just a short note of thanks for the food bag collected from you on 31st October '07.

Sadly, many of the domestic violence victims that we come into contact with at the Victim Care Centre are in a desperate situation.

The recipient of your generous gift has struggled to cope financially for a considerable time and I know this gift will be welcome.

It is comforting to know that the members of your church are willing to show such humanity and compassion to a stranger.

Thank you for all of your donations. They truly do make a difference, no matter how small, and they show God's love in action in perhaps more ways than we realise.
