The staff from local car dealership Stourbridge Mazda reached out to the community on Facebook to find out which organisations in our local area need help. After many recommendations, the team have chosen organisations which are close to their heart.

Stourbridge Mazda are now proud to be a donation hub for the local Black Country Food Bank and Outreach Angels.  These non-for-profit organisations work within the local area to provide for vulnerable individuals and families in crisis. Due to the Coronavirus more people have found themselves in need of support than ever before.  

The Black Country Food Bank started in June 2006 and now helps in 24 locations across the Black Country, hugely relying on donations to support those facing hardship in the area. The Outreach Angels provide vital support such as hot meals, drinks, basic clothing, bedding, toiletries, and emergency First Aid to the homeless community in the Birmingham area.
