Throughout the year, our teams at Swiis Foster Care Scotland host events, coffee mornings and collect donations to support various charities. This year, our team in Glasgow have chosen two specific charities to support throughout the festive period. The team chose to support Glasgow Mission and Second Chance Scotland.

A Helping Hand this Christmas

Glasgow Mission work with adults and children who are vulnerable and disadvantaged in Glasgow. They help them to break free from their situations.

Second Chance Scotland are a charity in Glasgow, run by Daniel Sloan and his team. Those at Second Chance Scotland work hard all year round to ensure help and support is provided to those who are homeless, poor or unemployed.

To show our support, we’ve made donations that includes warm clothing, toiletries and food items. This is to provide those living on the streets with the essentials they may need to help battle the cold winter months ahead. We filled drawstring bags with various items including hats, socks, scarves, gloves, toiletries, water and food items. We passed these on to Daniel and his team to distribute to those in need throughout Glasgow.

The team in Glasgow also made donations of various food items, selection boxes, Christmas crackers and treats which were packed into a large Christmas box and passed onto the Trussell Trust Glasgow NE Foodbank. These will be donated to a family in need this Christmas to ensure that they have all that they need to enjoy a special Christmas meal together on Christmas Day.

The charity was very grateful for all the donations and we were pleased to receive a thank you card to the team for our efforts.
