INFORMATION ON THE ABERDEEN FOOD INITIATIVE:
GATHERING THE FOOD
Record numbers of food bags are being given out, record numbers of people received food and a record number of families received presents for their children.
Our deep desire is that everyone in the Aberdeen communities across the city are catching the spirit of what we are trying to do within Aberdeen City with our SomebodyCares Food Initiative.
More companies than ever before collected food for us and gave us money to buy more. More schools than ever before, more churches, more city organisations and other charities than ever before supported us as we set out to provide for everybody who is in need of help.
We linked up with city agencies, health centres, homeless sections and numerous other agencies to identify the people most needing help at Christmas, as well as the people we provide help to on an ongoing basis.
Food bags are beginning to pile up in our warehouse;
Over 400 food bags were given out at our food bank in Tillydrone thi Christmas past and many food bags and presents were distributed at a packed out Christmas Carol Service that we had in Destiny Church.
Over 1000 Christmas presents were made up to give to the children of the regular families we provide for.
More stock…the need is great!
THE CHALLENGE AHEAD
Sadly, need is not just at Christmas time and Somebody Cares has given food to the city’s most needy people for over 17 years.
We have never seen such a requirement for help as we do now and this will continue to grow as people are impacted by low incomes, continually rising utility and food bills and ongoing changes to the benefits systems.
Somebody Cares will continue to be true to its name and provide for Aberdeen’s most deprived people on an ongoing basis. We have had to grow our food section hugely to cater for increased demand and have become Aberdeen’s biggest food provider by a substantial margin.

WE will continue to do this… BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP to sustain the provision to desperate families with hungry kids, starving pensioners and individuals who do not know where else to go for help.
SEMI / TOTAL HOUSE CLEARANCE SERVICE:
Somebody Cares will normally uplift furniture and other goods free of charge, providing we can re-use them call 01224 200197 for details.
We also do whole and part house clearances and appreciate that this is often not an easy thing to do emotionally, but we can help make it as hassle free as possible.
‘SOMEBODY CARES HOUSE CLEARANCE’
We will come and meet you and make arrangements to collect the items to be removed.
Depending on the amount of goods to be removed and the time it takes, there may be a charge for this service.
Collection is free but all furniture must adhere to the Fire, Health & Safety Regulations currently in place.
