Spring Campaign 2024

Published on March 19, 2024

Spring has finally arrived - at least, as far as the calendar is concerned!

We hope that you will help us this Spring, by providing a food donation or cleaning items from our Spring Shopping List.

The food items donated will be used to support people in our communities who are accessing our Crisis Food service, at our food banks or Community Hubs throughout the area. The cleaning items are given out as part of our home support packs, helping people who are setting up their new home when they receive the keys to new tenancies.

Here are some of the items that we need the most this Spring at Start Up Stirling:

  • Tinned meat

  • UHT milk

  • Breakfast cereal

  • Cooking sauce

  • Breakfast bars

  • TInned pasta

  • Tinned vegetables

  • Bathroom Spray

  • Washing up liquid

  • Kitchen Spray

  • Soap powder

  • Blue cloths

  • Sponge pads

Please do not donate products which contain bleach

Every donation that is made at one of our Donation Stations out in the community makes a big difference to the people that we support at Start Up Stirling.

"I just wanted to say thank you so much for all the food help you have given my family especially with the costs of everything. All of the volunteers are so friendly and welcoming at the Hub."

Demand for crisis food has never been higher. In 2023, Start Up Stirling provided the equivalent of 146,868 meals and supported 3,971 individuals, a third of whom were children. This trend has continued into 2024, so the need as we move towards the Easter school holidays has never been greater. Please help us to give individuals and families a fresh start at a time in their lives when they need our help the most.

For more information, please follow the posts on Facebook startup.stirling, on our news section of our website www.startupstirling.org.uk, or contact the Start Up Stirling office on 01786 561027, email- [email protected].

We would be happy to receive donations at our warehouse at 16b Whitehouse Road Stirling, FK7 7SP, Tuesday - Friday, 9am until 3pm. For larger donations, please ring in advance. However, the warehouse will be closed on Good Friday and Easter Monday.

We hope that you have a great Spring, and thank you for your ongoing support.
