Birmingham City Mission has produced a BCM Reverse Advent Calendar to help stock up the shelves at their food bank. The idea is, rather than (or as well as!) treating yourself every day through Advent, give to somebody else who needs the help. All the details on their website.
Print out BCM’s Reverse Advent Calendar, find a bag or box, attach it to the front and then add a new item each day. You could add the items suggested each day on the calendar or feel free to choose your own – it may be something you have going spare in the cupboard. Items just need to be non-perishable and within their use by date.
After Christmas, bring your full bag or box to Birmingham City Mission’s Resource Centre at the Clock Tower, 2 Langdon Street, Birmingham B9 4BP. We are open each week from Tuesday to Thursday, 10am to 4pm.
We will then distribute your donations to those who come to us in need.
Thank you for your generosity. Find out more about BCM’s Resource Centre & food bank
