Care Packages Bio
Vi Wood has set up a charity in memory of her late husband Leslie to help homeless people in the Stourbridge and Dudley.
Vi, a part-time carer, has vowed to help the homeless following her own experiences when she was in danger of losing her own home.
She set up the charity 'Leslie's care packages for the homeless' in August through Facebook and already it has attracted a big response from generous people across the Black Country.
Vi arranges community collections of warm clothing, toiletries, food items and other essentials which she then takes to various centres across the borough.
"She collects items and take them to places like, Heaven's Kitchen, Gather Dudley CIC,and CHADD in Dudley, Loaves n Fishes in Halesowen, Living Springs in Stourbridge,
"People can see what they've donated and where they have gone.
"She' is trying to spread the word in the hope some local businesses will come on board and support us."
