Home Instead, a locally owned home care business, has organised the distribution of over 100 boxes filled with essential items for vulnerable people across the city this Christmas.
As we come to the end of 2022, another challenging year for most, Milton Keynes-based Home Instead has organised the distribution of over 100 boxes filled with essential items for vulnerable people this Christmas.
Known for providing home care to older residents across Milton Keynes and the surrounding villages, Home Instead has been spreading the Christmas cheer this year with their 'Care to Share' Christmas box campaign.
Local businesses including Cauldwell Property Services MK, Co-Op Deanshanger, Deanshanger Good Neighbours Group, MKM (Milton Keynes), and Home Instead care professionals and staff were invited to fill shoebox-sized boxes with gifts and essential items.
These boxes have been distributed to charities providing help to the less fortunate: MK - ACT, The Bus Shelter MK, and Kings Food Bank in Wolverton. A wide variety of items were placed in the ‘Care To Share’ boxes ranging from children’s toys, colouring books, and mental health journals to essential items like toothpaste, shower gel, and sanitary items.
Sarah Freshwater, Community Engagement Lead at Home Instead Milton Keynes said: “Christmas can be such a challenging time for many. Sometimes it’s the small things that can make someone’s day really special.
We jumped at the chance to give back this Christmas. All of our staff contributed to the boxes and you could tell the care with which they’d selected just the right items that someone might like to find in their box.”
