Support the Food Bank Alkmaar

Support the Food Bank Alkmaar

Dear ESB Community,

At this festive time of year School and the PA normally organise a collection for the Alkmaar food bank.

Voedselbank Alkmaar & Heerhugowaard e.o.

Unfortunately, as last year, it is again impractical to arrange a physical collection of foodstuffs. It has been another difficult year for many families and the food banks remain invaluable to many. The PA considered that it would again be appropriate for us to offer seasonal support of the local community in the form of a monetary collection for the food bank in lieu of physical items. Last year we collected an amazing €1900, it would be great if we could beat that this year.

Click on the “DONATE” button to easily make a donation now.

Funds raised as of 17/12/2021



The donation value is set to €10.00 but this can be amended to whatever value you wish to give. All donations will be transferred to the Alkmaar Food Bank on Friday 17 th December. We will of course notify you of the total achieved.

Many thanks to you all in advance of your generous donations.

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas , “Fijne Feestdagen” and a happy and healthy 2022
