Swansea City are continuing our work with Matthew’s House to help spread Hospitality and Hope throughout the city. This time, we are calling on you to help.
The Homeless Period creates and distributes Dignity Packs to vulnerable women and men across Swansea. These packs contain toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorant, underwear, socks, sanitary products, tissues and wet wipes.
To be able to create the Dignity Packs, Matthew’s House and The Homeless Period rely on items donated from the public.
This weekend, May 3 to 6, we will be holding a designated drop-off for any donations at our stadium and city centre clubshops.
The full Dignity Pack shopping list includes:
- Sanitary products
- Wet wipes & small packs of tissues
- Underwear & socks
- Small underarm sprays
- Mints & gum
- Lip balm/ chap sticks
- Toothbrush & toothpaste
The city centre store will be open between 9.30am and 5.30pm on Friday and Saturday, while and on Sunday and Monday the opening hours are 10.30am to 4.30pm.
The stadium store will be open from 10am to 5pm on Friday, 9.30am to 5.30pm on Saturday, 10am to 4pm on Sunday and from 10am to 5pm on Monday.
Club ambassador Leon Britton will be attending a packing evening next week to help put together the Dignity Packs before they are distributed, as part of his ongoing work with the charity.
