c4ws Homeless Project – Collectathon
We are in need of more sleeping bags that we can donate to those members accessing our drop-in. If you have any good quality sleeping bags or would like to donate some new ones for us to distribute, please get in touch.
We are very grateful to anyone wishing to donate goods for use by our shelter guests.
Our needs at any given time are subject to change, but the following list details the items we are generally able to make use of, and those we cannot. If you are interested in donating goods to the project, please email us to find out what we are currently looking for at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Second Hand Items:
Most useful: Good-quality walking boots / waterproof leather boots
Waterproof jackets: ponchos, light-weight rain coats
Warm winter men’s coats
We have a far lower need for women’s coats and currently have a large supply in stock
Backpacks with shoulder straps
Men’s suits and shirts for our Jobs Club work wardrobe.
Also useful: Winter jumpers and cardigans
Shirts, t-shirts etc. for wearing under jumpers
Good-condition vests and thermal underwear
Scarves, winter hats, gloves etc.
Underpants (male and female)
Warm, thick socks and tights
Items we can’t make use of:
Bedding: second-hand duvets, pillows, bed linen and towels; blankets, sheets etc
Each shelter venue has its own supply of bedding, and we are able to provide our guests with brand new bedding sets when they move into accommodation thanks to provision by the Hampstead Wells and Campden Trust
Clothing that guests can’t practically make use of: e.g. evening wear
Second-hand underwear or clothing in poor condition.
