Facilities Management Solutions and sister company Plumbing and Gas Solutions have delivered 300 craft packs and 250 sanitary packs to children's centres across Milton Keynes - also donating a freezer to one centre to enable staff to store donated supermarket food.
Director Carl Yeomanson and his wife Hayley have lived in Milton Keynes for 40 years and have three children. Carl said: "There are lots of children's centres supporting families that need help in this area, so last October we started by providing packed lunches during the half term lockdown – and our support just continued from there.
"At Christmas we bought and delivered gifts to the different centres. It's been incredibly rewarding, seeing the great work they do and the essential support they are offering to local families, especially important during these extremely hard times.

Children's centres have struggled to continue as usual during the pandemic due to the enourmous logistical and financial difficulties caused by Covid-19.
Simone Drewett works at The Windmill Children's Centre in Milton Keynes which provides a wide range of activities and services for parents/carers and families of babies and children up to the age of five.
Simone Drewett, enhanced practitioner said: "The pandemic has provided additional challenges and struggles to the families that rely on our services and as a centre we've struggled to raise some of the essential funds we'd usually receive through fundraising events and activities.
"A huge thank you to Carl, Hayley and the whole team for such invaluable support. The freezer is a real game changer, enabling us to store and freeze food donations so that we can then distribute to families when they need it."
