Social Bite – Trees of Kindness
This year Social Bite are installing two Christmas trees in the city centres of Glasgow and Edinburgh for their Trees of Kindness initiative.
They are asking people to donate a gift to someone who is homeless or vulnerable and place it under the tree. The gifts will then be distributed throughout Scotland to homeless people, families, and children in poverty.
The Trees of Kindness will be open for you to drop your donated gift off from the 26th November.
Edinburgh – St Andrew’s Square
Glasgow – Vinicombe Street (just off Byres Road)
Gift donation times
Monday to Wednesday 12pm – 2pm
Thursday to Sunday 10:30am – 7:30pm
Below are some of the items on the wishlist, the full list can be found at festive.social-bite.co.uk, along with the do’s and don’ts and instructions on how to package your gift.
