Undated May 2019
I wish to donate to FOMO’s work to help the children Click Here
Appeal for storage space
If you can help we need undercover, secure space around the local to Longton/Preston area of about 640 square feet (52 squ/M) with access for a 40ft container lorry. (No power or water utilise required)
If you can help meet some or all of the cost please contact us. firstname.lastname@example.org
FOMO requirements have evolved to meet the growing number of children and FOMO’s overall expansion. As costs rise we are looking for very specific items to fill the container. Some of the items may be acquired through general public appeals, but a growing number of specific requirements requiring financial support are needed.
With over 3500 children to help you will realise some of the listed items are required in bulk. Groups concentrating on specific items such as new underwear, soap, toiletries, Soroptimists or Freda with her 5000+ hand made dresses have been very successful and much appreciated. With large amounts everyone gets something..
The following list, though not comprehensive will give an indication of the items we need for the next container to sustain our commitment to the children.
The motto is “If its new we more than likely will need it.”
The list is not in order of priority, we just need everything
