The Starter Packs Glasgow Office HQ is the heart of our charity. This is where we take referrals for our service, build up our packs and schedule their delivery.
We provided 1266 starter packs across the city last year, supporting 1813 people in our communities (1374 adults and 439 children). It has been our busiest year ever in the 20 years that we have been running. We can only do this thanks to the help and support of our local community, much-needed donations and our dedicated team of staff and volunteers.
Whilst many of the items donated to us are second-hand, some are provided brand new, purchased from our Amazon Wishlist, or bought with the proceeds raised by our two community shops, The Magpie’s Eye and The Magpie’s Nest. The shops were created to support our work, providing much needed funding for Starter Packs, and as a way to give back to the local community, providing low-cost furniture, clothing and household goods, as well as vintage and retro bric-a-brac and handmade crafts, at an affordable price.
