To manifest the TIS Annual Conference 2017 weekend theme of ‘Health, Wealth and Housing’, the Tenants Information Service (TIS) and raising awareness and supporting The Trussell Trust food bank.
With this in mind, TIS are kindly asking that delegates showcase their generosity and bring a food bank donation along with them to the event.
Over 90% of the food distributed by food banks in the Trussell Trust network is donated by the public – that is why food donations are absolutely vital to give everyone referred to the Trust a balanced and nutritious three-day supply of food. Without the public’s goodwill, food banks would really struggle to operate.
Here are some ideas of items that you can bring along:
- Pasta sauce
- Tinned meat
- Tinned vegetables
- Tinned fruit
We are also encouraging delegates to bring along some essential non-food items such as toiletries and hygiene products, helping people in crisis to maintain dignity and feel human again.
If you would like to show your support, please bring your items with you to the TIS Annual Conference 2017, Friday 9 – Sunday 11 June, Westerwood Hotel and Resort Glasgow.
Donations large or small will make a difference and are greatly appreciated.
