MULTIBANK CHARITY KEEPING CHILDREN OUT OF CARE, SURVEY SHOWS
COTTAGE FAMILY CENTRE AND BROWN AS MULTIBANK REACHES 1.5M GOODS FOR CHILDREN AND FAMILIES :
WE NEED MORE COMPANIES TO STOP A WINTER POVERTY CRISIS
Families supported by the Cottage Family Centre - Big Hoose Project “Multibank” initiative have admitted that without such support they would have had to put their children into care, a survey for the project reveals today.
Over HALF a million essential products have now been donated to families in need across Scotland by a charitable coalition, founded just one year ago by Amazon’s Fulfilment Centre in Fife and the nearby Cottage Family Centre in Kirkcaldy, whose patron is former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown.
Today, Wednesday 7th September, the Cottage Family Centre announces an expansion of its successful anti-poverty pilot programme -and its multi-bank - food bank, bedding bank, clothes bank, toiletries bank, home furnishings bank and heating bank; all rolled into one – set up to help Fife families in need.
As you are aware the Cottage Family Centre have signed an agreement with Amazon UK and other companies which will see multi million pounds worth of household goods be distributed to children and families living in poverty across Fife.
