Czech Republic, May 2021
We decided to support people in need through our local food bank in Ostrava. We consulted their manager and decided that our entire donation should go to the Center for Social Services Ostrava, which is a refuge for mothers and children. We set a date for the event to take place on the twenty-first of May 2021.
Frýdek-Místek volunteers then went out and purchased some food with a long shelf life. They transported it to the food bank in Ostrava.
The manager weighed our donation. It totalled 125 kilograms. She thanked us warmly for our donation and then informed the refuge that they could come and pick it up.
We all left with a good feeling that we had fulfilled what we set out to do – help people in need.
