Hello Everyone, last year we participated in a Humanist food drive for the homeless, which also invited donations of a wider range of items. We chose “Shelter from the Storm” as our main beneficiary, which is a non-religious shelter in the Kings Cross area. At the moment (7th October) they’re in most need of toiletries, particularly toothpaste and toothbrushes. People can either drop their donations in to the Coffee House between 5.30pm and 8pm or join us in taking things along just after 8pm. It's about a mile from the coffeehouse though! Not too many heavy or bulky items please! There are other donating options below.
We’ll also collect donations up to and including tonight. If you’re interested in getting involved with a centre more local to you instead and are not sure what to expect or how to go about it, have a chat with Jan who helps out in her north London area, or let us put you in touch.
