It is now almost four months since the Dons Local Action Group was formed and over 1,000 volunteers have helped to make this community project a tremendous success.
However, with lockdown restrictions having now been eased and people back at work, the DLAG needs your help to continue making a difference to the lives of people in Merton, Kingston, and Wandsworth.
Since its inception, notable achievements of the Dons Local Action Group include:
- Delivering 22,000 one-week food packs to those in poverty
- Providing 600 computer devices to children for online home learning
- Delivering furniture to households in desperate need
- Assisting the homeless
There are a number of tasks that the Dons Local Action Group requires help with, including:
- Collection points outside supermarkets
- Phone work (for food recipients)
- Phone work (for the hotline)
- Delivery driving
- Hub workers
- Rota leaders
- Marketing and Communications
- Volunteer management
- IT (wiping donated laptops)
