DENS, Action Against Homelessness in Dacorum provides support for people in our own community who are faced with homelessness. The charity offers a night shelter, hostel, foodbank, day centre and rehabilitation service.
Andy Young, Head of Residential explains our involvement this month; “For almost a decade, as a business, we have supported the fantastic work that DENS offers. Throughout December, our Berkhamsted and Hemel Hempstead teams are a collection point for donations as part of DENS festive fundraiser projects. We are encouraging everyone in the local area to pop into one of our branches between the hours of 09:00 – 17:00 to make a donation. The donation is discrete and personal to you. On the 12th December, our staff are joining in on the DENS Xmas Jumper day to raise money and as part of the DENS reverse calendar scheme, we are collecting food and clothing donations as part of the DENS reverse calendar scheme. Each day, an item is collected as shown on the calendar which can be found in our office. On the 19th December, all donations will be taken to the Foodbank. Donations the charity really need this month include tinned foods, chocolates, gloves and of course a Christmas pudding!”
