Sovicos Supports the Fight Against Poverty in The Hague with Food Bank Campaign

Poverty in The Hague: A Concerning Reality

Approximately 41,000 people in The Hague live below the poverty line, a percentage higher than the national average. These alarming statistics, unveiled by the Central Bureau of Statistics, point to a growing issue in our city.

Food Bank Haaglanden: Action in Aid

The Food Bank Haaglanden combats the consequences of poverty daily by providing between 2,100 and 2,400 food packages weekly through their distribution points and stores in The Hague, Rijswijk, and Zoetermeer. An essential service for thousands in need.

Together for a Better Future: Sovicos Joins In

Sovicos, in partnership with HKV, participates in the sports food bank campaign in April. We aim to support our community by collecting non-perishable items. Your help is invaluable! Starting Thursday, March 21, you can easily contribute by donating products in the crates located in our clubhouse.

What Does the Food Bank Campaign Entail?

The food bank campaign is a national initiative that sports clubs join. April poses a challenge for food banks as stocks are often depleted after the holidays. Therefore, we unite with other sports clubs to gather non-perishable items for those in need.

Why Sovicos Is Participating?

It’s not only an opportunity to shine as a club but also to extend a helping hand to our community. The food bank campaign enhances the camaraderie and pride within our club, as we rally behind a noble cause.
