Over 6,000 bags of donations a week needed to run children’s charity shops

Jan 14, 2019

EACH has revealed it takes over 6,000 bags of donations a week to run its shops, as the charity launches its Bag It, Bring It, Boost It campaign for 2019.

They can only do that with a regular flow of donations, though, so ​we are to continue running its successful Bag It, Bring It, Boost It campaign this year.

Encouraging individuals, families, community groups, schools and businesses to bag up their unwanted items and drop them off at an EACH shop, the donation drive was a huge success when it launched in 2017, with over 80 companies and colleges getting involved to supply in excess of 1,000 bags.

EACH can help provide themed collection bags, posters and flyers. It can also arrange collections for any companies, schools or just large groups that want to participate. Contact your relevant fundraising office:

Suffolk and East Essex – 01473 917965 or treehouse@each.org.uk
