Christmas Parcel Packing
Packing of the Companion Christmas parcels has taken place with 30 Companion volunteers making up 1,065 parcels packed in 97 boxes ready for delivery. Each parcel has five items of clothing and 10 different toiletries in a wash bag.
In total 757 men’s parcels and 308 women’s parcels were made up, consisting of over 15,500 items, to be delivered to homeless men and women this year. These will be sent to 23 different regional Companion groups in Scotland and England who will then distribute them to the homeless. Coatbridge is also receiving wrapped Christmas boxes with toys for the Ukrainian war orphan refugees. These were put together by local school children.
