The Good Shepherd have received a donation of masks from Wolves Foundation which will be used to help protect people during the pandemic.
Wolves Foundation, working with the club’s owners Fosun, have donated thousands of items of PPE during the pandemic to local hospitals and care homes.
Now they have donated a further 10,000 face masks to a group of charities and agencies across Wolverhampton, including the Good Shepherd.
The masks will be passed on to service users who are currently needing to queue for the daily food takeout, as well as staff, who are continuing to offer a wide range of services in line with restrictions.
“Although we have had to adapt we have continued our services throughout the pandemic, including meeting an increased demand for our daily food takeout, and providing various types of support to our service users within the Covid-19 guidelines,” says Tom Hayden, Head of Operations at the Good Shepherd.
“In doing this we have been using a high number of masks, both for our own staff and those accessing the charity, and this donation from Wolves Foundation and Fosun is very much appreciated.
“One of the positives that has emerged from such a difficult year has been the way different charities and organisations from across Wolverhampton have come together to help each other, and this latest support from the Foundation is another example of the fantastic community spirit in the city.”
The Good Shepherd are very appreciative of this latest donation and the continuing support of Wolves Foundation.
