Operation Drawstring for Birmingham Homeless at Christmas Update

Operation Drawstring Update

By Kerry Lenihan

Since I started the Operation Drawstring project the support has been overwhelming, so I want to start by saying a huge thank you to those of you who have offered your time, funding and help so far.

For more information of the initiative see the earlier Operation Drawstring post on MOMS.

Please remind yourself of what kind of items to include by referring to the poster below:



If dropping off bags or items at Villa Park this Saturday is convenient, when you go to the Watford game, there is a drop off point. For security reasons, we won’t broadcast it, so please get in touch with MOMS or via the Facebook or Twitter contacts listed below, if you would like to bring some items on Saturday for Operation Drawstring. Thanks.

Also, thanks to those who came to last week’s fundraiser Quiz Night at Boston Tea Party and the Volunteer Briefing at the MAC.

For those further afield who would still like to help out, there is a fundraising page at https://crowdfunding.justgiving.com/opdrawstring The money raised will go towards purchasing drawstring bags, essentials to fill them with and storage costs throughout the campaign.

Further details will be announced on the project Facebook page or you can follow @opdrawstring or @kerrylynn21 on Twitter.
