Christmas food bags were distributed for people in need in Stockholm during December 2020.
It was with great joy that Stockholm’s needy received their well-stocked Christmas food bags from Helping Hands containing traditional Swedish Christmas cuisine, including several kinds of salmon and herring along with chicken drumsticks as well as Christmas ham, small sausages and other meats. The bags also contained various salads, fresh baked saffron buns, nuts, snacks and numerous Christmas candy. Several soft drinks were also included.
Due to the prevailing pandemic, we distributed the Christmas food bags differently this year, where only one or a couple of people at a time picked up their grocery bags at a pre-ordered time in order to avoid crowding. It is gratifying to have the opportunity to continue aiding people in these times of ever increasing need for help.
Warm thanks to all of you who assisted and thereby made this joyful relief effort possible! It has been a tough year for many but now we are hoping for brighter times ahead.
