Amazon fulfillment centre in Milton Keynes donates £1,000 to neighbouring homelessness project

The local Amazon team has donated £1,000 to a charity helping the homeless in Bedford.

The money has gone to King’s Arms Project, which delivers services to empower people on their journey out of homelessness. The charity provides outreach, accommodation and opportunity all specifically developed to help people out of poverty. 

The donation will be used for client support costs, meaning food for clients, refreshments during one-to-ones, course materials for back-to-work training, external trainer fees and more, all to enable clients to make the huge leap from living on the streets to accessing safe accommodation and paid employment. 

Speaking on the donation, Victor Pulido, General Manager at Amazon in Milton Keynes, said: “It’s our pleasure to support King’s Arms Project with this donation to assist them with helping people out of poverty.

"We want to say a big thank you to the charity’s staff and volunteers for all they do for the people of Bedford.” 

The donation was made as part of Amazon’s programme to support the communities around its operating locations in the UK.
