Who are we?
Cumbernauld & Kilsyth Care is a small, local charity run entirely by volunteers. We run a baby bank and school uniform bank service, as well as general clothing bank, to help families who are struggling to provide essentials for their children.
What do we do?
We operate a referral system and professionals - and other organisations - working with families who are struggling, come to us for assistance on their behalf. Our baby bank provides everything from nappies to cots and prams. Our school uniform bank also provides school essentials like bags and coats, as well as uniform. And we also provide general clothing for children of all ages.
Why do we need your help?
At this time of year we are inundated with referrals for warm winter essentials - warm coats and woolies, like hats, gloves and scarves. We also put in a pair of pyjamas with clothing referrals, and things like onesizes, warm socks and dressing gowns when we have them.
We provide a mix of pre-loved and new items, and try to minimise what we need to buy. But we constantly find ourselves short of stock, and trying to keep up with demand. So some extra funds to get us through these extra winter demands would be amazing. We simply couldn't do what we do without the support of so many generous individuals in our community.
So, if you can spare a few pounds, we would be very grateful on behalf of all the families who need our help.
