Manchester City gave a Christmas present to every foster child across the city and donated 500 three-course meals to local families.
The initiative, which also included a gift from the club to every elementary school student in East Manchester, was a recognition of the challenges the region is facing this winter.
Research has shown that every third child in the city will not have a Christmas present this year after the economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

Sergio Aguero went to schools to spread cheers. The town’s community work delivered 5,500 gifts during the holiday season.
They also gave 45,000 everyday necessities, including clothing and toiletries, to ten charities to be distributed over the winter.
“We all know how difficult this year has been and that for some the festive season will be particularly challenging,” said General Manager Ferran Soriano.
“Our priority has been to find ways to connect with those most in need in our community, provide specific support and let them know that their football club is there for them.

“Thanks to the combined efforts of our coaches, staff, our players and our charity City in the Community, we were able to make a difference and share some city magic.”
Christmas hospital visits where first-team stars spend time with patients cannot continue this year. Aguero is one of the interlocutors on video calls in four medical centers.
Pep Guardiola’s team donated annually to the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital for new equipment.
Mike Green, City Manager for the Community, said, “Manchester City has always been closely associated with its community and we are proud to have done our part in helping local people since this pandemic began.
“We knew Christmas was going to feel very different this year and we were determined to find ways to support those in Manchester who need it most.”
