Now! Charity Group Ltd appeals for help paying for emergency ‘Home in a Box’ packs

Now! Charity Group Ltd are well known for their free training provision and low cost home and office furniture, but also work tirelessly across East Sussex delivering emergency ‘home in a box’ packs. This emergency service supports local individuals or families who have finally been given a roof over their head or have hit a crisis point in their lives. Examples include those fleeing domestic violence, young people leaving care or for the homeless who have now been homed.

In all of these situations the client has nothing and is trying to come to terms with their situation and could also be supporting their children. An emergency ‘Home in a Box’ pack contains the basic essential kitchen and bathroom items that we all take for granted such as plates, mugs, glasses, toilet rolls, towels, soap, toothbrushes, toothpaste, frying pans, saucepans etc all of which is currently paid for by the Charity. Sadly demand is increasing and the charity is now seeking help with the cost of these packs.
You can support someone in your community by making a donation of new kitchen or bathroom items or paying for one of these packs. It costs the Charity £65 for a single starter pack which contains enough for two adults and £95 for a family pack which contains enough for a family of 4 adults.

It’s heart-breaking to see the orders increasing each week as it means that more people in East Sussex are without the basic things that we all need on a daily basis. Losing your job, developing a health condition or entering into an abusive relationship can turn your world upside down so quickly. We would be really grateful for any donation big or small to support us to continue this vital service. We are also setting up an Amazon wish list so people can buy individual items through that route’. – Charity CEO Petrina Mayson
