Foodbanks Return To The Jss On Saturday!

The Town Foundation & HTSA have teamed up for another season to help provide emergency resources to the local community as part of the ‘Fans for Foodbanks’ initiative.

Following the successes of last season, the initiative returns for the 2018/19 campaign with the first collection taking place this Saturday at Town’s Premier League opener against Chelsea.

Supporters are invited to bring donations of long shelf life food to the match and deposit them in one of the branded bins located around the John Smith’s Stadium.

There will be six stations for supporters to make their donations; three at the South End of the Revell Ward Stand, two near the Gym Entrance by the Fantastic Media turnstiles and one by the South Stand home turnstiles.

The branded bins will be in situ from 1.30pm up until kick-off and supporters are asked to bring along any long shelf life food they wish to donate – unfortunately we cannot accept fresh foods.

All the donations from the game will then be given to foodbanks for distribution in the local community for those who need the support.

Over 2,000 donations were made by Huddersfield Town supporters last season backed by HTSA’s ‘Fans for Foodbanks’ campaign last season.

The Town Foundation’s Operations and Events Manager, Julie Sheffield commented:

“The generosity of our supporters last season was unrivalled, and I’m delighted that we are able to work with HTSA to bring the ‘Fans for Foodbank’ initiative back for the new season.

“One of the main aims of the Charity is to support to the local community and I hope we can continue to provide support for those who need the help.

“I encourage all fans to get behind the initiative and make their donations ahead of the game on Saturday.”
