Trent Alexander-Arnold assists volunteers and staff in packing packages for the homeless
The organisation is among the biggest homelessness charities in the city at a time when the number of people sleeping rough in the city has increased by more than 50% in the last year.
Together with Liverpool City Council leader Liam Robinson and Metro Mayor Steve Rotheram, Alexander-Arnold assisted staff members and volunteers at its warehouse in packing emergency packages that will be sent to close to 2,000 households.
The people in attendance created a conveyor belt and packed essentials like clothes, gifts, coupons, sanitary products, and certificates into gift bags so they could be distributed throughout the city.
Amidst a “unprecedented” spike in rough sleeping, Cllr Robinson recently declared the situation an emergency and requested the government to provide greater support.
Alexander-Arnold stated that he was very concerned about homelessness in an interview with the ECHO. It’s a developing problem, he stated. It’s one that has a significant impact on the citizens of the city as well as those who are near to me, friends, family, and other people I hold in high regard.
“It’s a significant issue in the city, but it’s one that organisations like this are making every effort to address.”
Helping combat homelessness is a “no brainer,” according to Alexander-Arnold, who also said that he had spoken with the Metro Mayor directly to inquire about what he might do.
Alexander-Arnold was chosen Liverpool’s vice-captain last summer. He dismissed the notion that his newfound passion for advocating for social causes in the city was a result of his leadership role.
