Hearts and Hands Stafford a new non for profit community organisation primarily helping those affected by COVID 19 and a reduced income the self employed, furloughed and those who have slipped through the net and need a bit of help.
Hearts and Hands a splinter group from Helping Hearts Outreach for Wolverhampton and Staffordshire, now dealing independently in Stafford and the surrounding area is run by a volunteer team and have the needs of the community foremost in their minds, with the mission to help and assistance wherever they can
Working with other charities and community groups within the area, signposting people to those that can also assist and respecting people’s dignity with confidentiality a priority
Assisted by local supermarkets supplying surplus food that would normally go to waste and distributing free of charge to the community to those who are in need.
Hearts and Hands collection points are scattered throughout the area, outside the homes of community minded people who collect dry food and tinned food goods to add to the stock at Hearts and Hands to be given away in food hampers
Their motto; never look down on someone unless you are helping them up!
Katie Lowe founder of Hearts and Hands Stafford said;
“We saw a need in Stafford and the surrounding areas as many people have been affected financially this last year through no fault of their own, before they could cover all their bills but on reduced income because they are self employed, furloughed and maybe illness has hit the household and cannot turn to anyone else for help, many never needed to ask before that were we hope to be able to help and if we can’t we can signpost to someone who can”
