Fill a Box

One: Get the Food

Pick up a list or use the website and decide what you're going to get. You can buy one or a few items, get it all yourself, or you can join with others: family; friends; work colleagues; classmates; community group - you choose! Decide who will buy what. Head to the shops and buy your chosen items.

Two: Get a Box

If you don't already have one, pick up a flat-pack Big Red Box (if you want to fill a whole one) and carefully place all the items inside. Boxes are available from King's Church sites from Sunday 16th November.

Three: Give it in

You can contribute a complete box or simply bring in some items from the list that you would like to contribute. Full boxes and items should be brought to any of the King's Church sites before Sunday 14th December.

"I just wanted to thank you, all the volunteers and the contributors who worked so hard to provide the Hampers. Most of the families we work with have high levels of need or are children classed as vulnerable or in need, so I can assure you that the Hampers are very much appreciated and will reach those in most need in the borough." Social Services Manager (2012)

"The hampers below were provided by my team at the LOCOG (London 2012 Olympic Organising Committee) Accreditation and Uniforms department. They were so excited to know the great work that King's is doing. I was overwhelmed by the response." LOCOG (2012)
