Trafford Park based, 100 Percent Group Limited, has donated food, household items and Easter eggs to support homelessness charity Emmaus Salford.
Dan Williams, Managing Director of 100 Percent Group Limited, delivered a carload of donations to the charity on Good Friday. The delivery included more than 100 items of food, 100 items of toiletries, 120 toilet rolls and Easter eggs for beneficiaries of Emmaus Salford.
Dan said: “Team 100% are committed to supporting our local community and were delighted to make this donation to our neighbours Emmaus Salford as a contribution to help those who need it right now.”
Emmaus Salford supports 22 formerly homeless people by providing them with a stable home, meaningful work and support for as long as they need it. The charity operates three social enterprises across Salford, selling donated and upcycled furniture, household goods, electrical items, clothes and vintage wares.
100 Percent is a retail marketing business who provide award-winning solutions to implement retail experiences across the world on behalf of leading global brands. The team has previously supported Emmaus by completing the National Three Peaks Challenge fundraising walk and by donating items to support Emmaus Salford.
Rachel Richardson, Community Director at Emmaus Salford, said: “Our community is extremely grateful to 100 Percent Group for their latest kind support of Emmaus Salford. This is a difficult time for us and many charities but it’s heartening that so many people and organisations are supporting those less fortunate.
“Dan at 100 Percent Group is one of the many local heroes who answered our call for donations. These items will not only support our formerly homeless residents, they will also be distributed to vulnerable households via our social supermarket, Lucie’s Pantry.”
Unfortunately, due to coronavirus, all of Emmaus Salford’s charity stores are temporarily closed, significantly reducing the charity’s income. Emmaus will continue to support its community of formerly homeless residents and members of Lucie’s Pantry but is appealing for donations to help during the coronavirus crisis.
