We are often approached by generous members of the community looking to donate clothing items for people experiencing homelessness. For donations of material aid, we kindly request that you refer to the list below. Due to our limited storage space, we are not always able to accept and store material aid for distribution to our friends on the street, however frequent stocktakes allow for us to reach out to sponsors and donors for desired and required items.
When donating second-hand clothing items, we ask that they only be offered if washed and wearable. All socks and underwear donations must be new.
