The Morrisons Foundation has donated £18,400 to Emmaus Oxford to sponsor a new van for our fleet!
The grant from the Morrisons Foundation means we can keep on collecting and delivering donated furniture and household goods. TOur vans are a key part of our social enterprise, which provides formerly homeless people with work experience.
Eddie Blaze, Emmaus Oxford’s General Manager was thrilled to receive the donation, “We’re really grateful to the Morrisons Foundation for sponsoring our new van. Emmaus Oxford runs a social enterprise in which people who’ve been homeless work in our second-hand store and collect and deliver furniture from our trusty fleet of vans”
“We offer people who’ve been homeless a second chance by giving them somewhere safe to live and meaningful work. We also help the whole local community to reduce waste and get a bargain. The Morrisons Foundation’s generous support will help Emmaus Oxford to keep our social enterprise moving”
