Amazon support for community charity

Posted onPosted on 14th Mar

The Amazon fulfilment centre in Sutton has made a £1,000 donation to a charity that tackles food poverty and supports disadvantaged children and families.

Himmah works towards making a positive change in the community through projects such as operating the largest independent foodbank in Nottingham. The charity also collects, repairs and redistributes school uniforms to low-income families, and provides education sessions on culture, history, finances and many other practical skills.

The donation from Amazon will go towards purchasing non-perishable goods to put into emergency food parcels, which go directly to those in need of food support.

Vivek Khanka, general  manager at Amazon in Sutton, said: “Himmah provides excellent support through its many projects across the community, and I am pleased we could support its staff and volunteers with this donation.”

Uzair Hashmi, operations and volunteering lead at Himmah, added: “I would like to say thank you to the team at Amazon in Sutton for this donation, which will strengthen our projects and services and give our team a boost in their efforts. We really appreciate the support.”
