The Success of Winter Warmer Packs in December 2023

We are pleased to announce the huge success of our Winter Warmer Packs, which provided warmth and comfort to those in need across the country during these difficult winter months.

In partnership with 4Front Furniture, the Mears Foundation distributed 1,200 Winter Warmer Packs, each containing essential items such as fleece blankets, thermos flasks, thermal socks, thermometers, hats, and gloves. These packs have made a big difference in the lives of those facing challenges by giving much-needed warmth and comfort during the colder months.

The Winter Warmer Packs were delivered throughout Mears' branches and departments, benefiting charities across the country and impacting the lives of people in a variety of communities.

Some quotes we’ve received:

• From a recipient of a Winter Warmer pack: “It really helped to get that pack as I sometimes run out of money to pay for gas. I gave my daughter the gloves for the walk to school. Her hands were getting so cold. Thank you so much."

• From a lead person at another charity: "We really appreciate the kindness you have shown to us so far... Merry Christmas."

• From an anonymous service user: "I don’t know what to say – thank you for your kindness."

We would like to send out our appreciation to everyone who helped make a significant difference in the lives of countless people this winter.
