Kent Charity Welcomes Wish List Donation From Amazon
Kent charity, Rapport Housing & Care has used a £1000 wish list donation from their local Amazon Sortation Centre, to thank staff for their hard work throughout the pandemic.
With eleven locations across the county and over 400 members of staff, the local Amazon Sortation Centre in Maidstone has donated enough sweet treats for everyone who works for the charity, as a thank you for the invaluable work undertaken by all employees, particularly during the past few months, which have been incredibly difficult.
The committed and hardworking teams have kept more than 300 vulnerable residents safe and happy during an exceptionally challenging time and this gesture serves as a thank you for all they have done.
From the care, domestic and kitchen teams, to the administration, maintenance and management, they have all really supported one another and worked as a family to come through the situation even stronger.
Katrina Levett, Director of Operations at Rapport Housing & Care said: “As a not for profit organisation, any surplus we make goes straight back into our services, thus we don’t often get the opportunity to give our staff gifts. So when Amazon approached us in the middle of the pandemic with the offer of fulfilling a wish list for us, we knew it’d be a great idea to use it to reward our staff.”
“Our teams have worked extremely hard to keep our residents safe since the Covid 19 outbreak several months ago, so we are very grateful to Amazon for assisting us to show our appreciation.”
