Amazon donations for community support group

Posted onPosted on 21st Dec

The Amazon fulfilment centre in Sutton has made a donation of £2,000-worth of items to a community support group in Rainworth.

Social Action Hub provides emergency food parcels and a social supermarket as well as running a project that helps young people who are struggling with their mental health.

The donation of items from Amazon included Lego, puzzles, and colouring books.

Vivek Khanka, general manager at Amazon Sutton, said: “I know many people in our community rely on the support provided by Social Action Hub. It’s great that we at Amazon can support the charity with this donation.”

Emma Shipstone, of Social Action Hub, added: “We really appreciate this support from the Amazon team in Sutton-in-Ashfield. It will provide a boost to our efforts and ensure we can continue our work supporting those who need it the most.”

Community donations and employee volunteering are just two of the ways Amazon supports the communities in and around its operating locations across the UK. Amazon provides students, teachers and parents with free computer science and STEM education programmes through Amazon Future Engineer and has teamed up with charity partner Magic Breakfast to deliver more than seven million healthy breakfasts to children at risk of hunger in disadvantaged areas of the country.

Earlier this year, Amazon partnered with Comic Relief to become the official home of the Red Nose. Amazon employees across the UK hosted fundraising activities and together with their customers and partners, raised £2.7m to support those going through the toughest time of their lives.
