Drive Thru Foodbank
Time & Location
About the event
Red and White Army, has teamed up with the SAFC’s official charity, the Foundation of Light, to create a very special foodbank collection at the Stadium of Light on Monday 21st December 2020.
With food poverty on the rise across the region, fans from across Sunderland, South Tyneside and County Durham are coming together to organise to a drive through foodbank in the Stadium’s car park, with all donations being collected on behalf of the Salvation Army and Trussell Trust foodbanks.
From 9a.m. on Monday 21st December, Sunderland AFC fans and local businesses will be encouraged to drop-off tinned food supplies, Christmas food - such as selection boxes and biscuits - and toiletries to the Red Car Park in a specially designed drive-through system.
Using the layout of Stadium Park, cars will arrive via Vaux Brewery Way (driving past the Aquatic Centre) before pulling up to specially designated drop-off bays. Once parked, volunteers will collect donations, without the member of the public getting out of the car. Cars will then exit the site via Millennium Way (heading towards Sheepfolds and City Centre).
Supporters and local businesses are being encouraged to get involved by collecting from friends and neighbours, or organising a collection from staff.
The health and wellbeing of volunteers and the public is paramount. A full risk assessment has taken place and all volunteers will be provided with masks, gloves and hand sanitiser. Strict social distancing guidelines will also be in place.
If you would like to volunteer to help, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest.
If you are unable to attend the Drive Through Foodbank but would like to show your support, donations can be made via
with all proceeds being split between Trussell Trust, Salvation Army and Foundation of Light.
