Random act of kindness boosts York charity by £1,800
US-based non-profit Random Acts has donated £1,800 to York charity Independent Domestic Abuse Services (IDAS).
The organisation aims to spread kindness throughout the world, and it supports organisations that provide fundamental help to local communities.
So Random Act’s UK-based project manager, Miranda Debenhab, reached out to IDAS.
Familiar with the organisation’s outstanding work in helping Yorkshire residents affected by domestic and sexual abuse, she wanted to know how Random Acts could help.
The result is the donation, which will be used to provide 40 care packages for those staying at IDAS refuges.
The care packages are custom-tailored to the needs of individual residents. They contain a wide range of groceries, personal care products, and items for babies and toddlers.
“The financial donation from Random Acts will make a real difference to the families we support, many of whom escape abuse with little more than the clothes they are wearing,” said Andrea Williams, community service manager at IDAS.
