Deliver HOPE to the doorsteps of struggling children

Receive £200 and join our national Box of Hope project

Passionate about standing by vulnerable children and families? Since COVID-19 hit the country, TLG has equipped over 200 churches to reach out to some of the most vulnerable families across the UK as part of our Box of Hope project.

This pandemic is having a devastating impact on struggling families. As we head into the winter months, which are difficult on finances and wellbeing at the best of times, it’s vital that these families are supported. We can equip your church to do that!

Since the first Lockdown in March, local churches in partnership with TLG have delivered a staggering 510,000 (and counting!) meals to children and families in crisis. These emergency care packages – Boxes of Hope – have provided not only a practical lifeline, but vital relational support and encouragement from the surrounding community. Never before has the church had such an opportunity as this to serve in such a practical and personal way.

 

Will your church join us? 

TLG is excited to be in a position to extend this opportunity to even more churches by equipping them to reach out to struggling children and their families. We are thrilled to be able to offer start-up funding of £200 to help with initial costs. The process has been designed to be as simple as possible so that your church can receive our comprehensive package of support to help get you up and running within a week! Get in touch today by calling 01274 900377 or filling in the form below. We would love to hear from you.

The volunteers are amazing. Each parcel kept us going for a few more days which was a God-send - Sarah

Sarah's Story

Sarah, her husband Sean and their 7-year-old son Archie were fearful and anxious of the impact of COVID-19 on their family.

With a reduced income and bills still to pay, getting food on the table was challenging. Sean normally works in pubs and clubs, so he could no longer work, and the loss of school made Archie restless and miss his friends. Yet the TLG Make Lunch team in their community delivered Boxes of Hope each week to Sarah and her family, relieving strain and pressure in an unprecedented time.

Fresh food, staple household items and arts and crafts for Archie helped to provide both practical and emotional support to the family, whilst the quick doorstep chats with a friendly face each week allowed connection to be kept up too.

“My favourite ingredients to cook with were the couscous and aubergine. I loved getting the deliveries from the fire engine too and seeing what activity pack I got each week” said Archie. 

Church Case Study

St James, Lancashire

Like communities all over the country, Lockdown was incredibly difficult. It always seems to be those on the margins that suffer the most with pandemics like this.

We have been working with families struggling with Universal Credit, families losing employment, or families suffering with bereavement. Being able to give out Boxes of Hope at this time has really helped us to support mums and dads in the area by providing food boxes to those who are most in need.

I have dropped food to different families and literally had people crying as they had no idea how they were going to provide a meal that day.

As soon as we recognised the increasing need, TLG were one step ahead and, through the start-up funding, enabled us get going quickly with this provision.
