Steven Gerrard donates generously to Liverpool foodbanks

According to the Liverpool Echo, the foundation of Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard has donated £5,000 to help food banks in the city.

The Rangers manager is a club legend and a hero on the pitch for the better part of a decade and a half. With the pandemic threatening to cripple foodbanks, he has once again stepped up to make a difference.

The gesture was a response to the LFC Emergency Foodbank Appeal. Its aim is to help support food banks serving vulnerable people in Liverpool and the rest of Merseyside.

Liverpool launched the appeal last week to give people an opportunity to make a charitable donation. This will help support the Trussell Trust Foodbank network, which provides emergency assistance to people living in food poverty.

“On behalf of my Foundation, I am proud to make this donation to the LFC Emergency Foodbank Appeal to support those who need it most”

Gerrard has stressed on the importance of keeping the foodbanks functioning. They provide a lifeline for a number of people and keeping them afloat becomes important especially in times of crisis such as now.

He stressed on the importance of donations, irrespective of the denomination. Every contribution makes a difference and will go a long way in providing essential services for those that need it the most.
