It really is that many! The list continues to grow.
That's why every penny or tin donated really does make a difference.
Every week hundreds of new and used items are donated through our service.
Exmouth Friends in Need is a non profit organisation founded by Claire Austin in November 2018, It exists to help prevent and alleviate poverty for families in Exmouth and surrounding areas.
The team has grown considerably and now consists of many valued volunteers and helpers.
We offer support to local families by providing food (predominantly fresh food but not exclusively), general essential household items, topping up Gas and Electricity, help towards paying the fuel bills and even assisting in furnishing new households with white goods and everything they need to keep peoples' heads above water thus encouraging sustainability for those in temporary poverty or suffering hardship.
More About Us
For every family that no longer needs our support another new family requests help every week.
Some days we deliver over 10 parcels a day!
Every day tens of items are picked up and dropped off reducing landfill waste and our carbon footprint.
In almost three years we've grown and need all the support we can get right now.
Members of the Exmouth community gift to the Facebook Group Page any unwanted items that are in fairly good condition.
We accept most of the following items to the group:
