Linkey – Out and About with Rough Sleepers Collectathon Project

Category: Collectathon

Collect, sort and distribute items to rough sleepers

Linkey works to distribute essential items to people sleeping on the streets or in homeless shelters.

We would like your help, now that it’s winter, to collect all the essential items, help us sort them, and then drive in teams across London to hand out items to rough sleepers.

 

In the month leading up to Mitzvah Day, we ask that you please collect the following items.

New or excellent condition sleeping bags

Large Rucksacks

New or good quality thick Hats and Gloves.

Thermal Socks

Travel Blankets

Warm Jackets

Mini toiletries – toothbrush and toothpaste, mini shower gel, deodorant.

Sanitary Products

 

On Mitzvah Day itself, we ask for volunteers to sort items through the day and for teams of people to drive across areas including: Watford, Camden/Kings Cross, Victoria, Westminster, Charing Cross, Hackney/Shoreditch/Liverpool Street, London Bridge – and hand out key items to rough sleepers.
