Reconomy offers up Easter treats to in-need families

Telford-based waste management and recycling specialists, Reconomy, has announced it is working with Telford Crisis Support Foodbank this Easter, helping to bring smiles to the faces of vulnerable families across the area.

On behalf of its employees, Reconomy has donated 100 large Easter Eggs and provided them to the foodbank in time for the forthcoming bank holiday weekend. These will be delivered as part of emergency parcels to families experiencing financial difficulties during these incredibly difficult times.

The donation has been funded through Reconomy’s award winning social value programme (RSVP) which a core component of the company’s wider sustainability strategy. RSVP’s overarching aims are to build stronger community ties, help vulnerable groups into work, reduce modern slavery and close the waste industry skills gap.

Diane Crowe, Head of Sustainability and Social Value, said: “We’re delighted to once again be working with Telford Crisis Support Foodbank, which plays such a critical role in supporting Telford families in need. The coronavirus pandemic has sadly resulted in more and more families relying on foodbanks for the most basic of essentials. The Reconomy Social Value Programme aims to identify and support community needs where we can, and we hope this latest donation to Telford Crisis Support will raise a smile.”

Teresa Roe, from Telford Crisis Support Foodbank, said: “Telford Crisis Support would like to thank Reconomy for their kind donation. After a difficult year for so many individuals and families, it will be lovely to see them receive the gift of a chocolate egg – Thank you Reconomy for making our beneficiaries and their children smile over the Easter period.”
