Scunthorpe Winter Rucksack Project 2020

The Forge rucksack project is a yearly occurrence in which you can donate items that vulnerable people require over the winter months. But don’t forget you can donate to The Forge anytime of year or even become a volunteer.

Making a rucksack pack couldn’t be easier! Grab a rucksack with the listed items or donate individual items to make a bag. Items do not need to be new, but we ask them to be in a good, clean condition.

What they need:

  • Sleeping bags
  • Rucksacks
  • Gloves
  • Hats
  • Fleece jackets (smaller size clothes are best please)
  • Winter coats
  • Socks
  • Clean/new male and female underwear
  • Flask
  • Toiletries
  • Bin bags
  • Coffee, tea and sugar

Anything you can spare is more than appreciated.
Volunteers will be at The Forge on 19th November 10am-1pm to collect and sort rucksacks. There is also a drop off point throughout October to November 15th at Cobweb Crystal, 15 Laneham street if you cannot make the event date drop off.

For more info go to The Forge Facebook page. On there you will also find the event.
