#ExpertView: Agents Giving Day 2020

Join forces with Agents Giving to help combat poverty in your local communities

Do something great to support your local community foodbank this June.  The UK property industry charity, Agents Giving, is continuing its support of The Trussell Trust and local foodbanks with a nationwide campaign on 18th June for their annual Agents Giving Day.  The aim is to encourage all letting agents and suppliers to support their local foodbank by donating a food parcel to help combat poverty.

Essential food items and toiletries, baby items and hygiene products are desperately needed by low-income communities. 

How can you help?   You can prepare a simple food parcel of items to donate to your local foodbank to tackle hunger in your own local community. Your office can act as a collection point for any food donations in your area, or you could volunteer or fundraise for your local foodbank.  It’s up to you! Get involved and make a difference to the people in your town or city.

Last year over 22,000 food items and toiletries were collected. Let’s aim to beat that figure for 2020!  Remember to let Agents Giving know your collection total and which foodbank you are supporting by registering at:
