Humanist Food+ Drive

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.

King's Cross shelter - Shelter from the Storm relies entirely on
donations to survive. Everything you give is used purely to keep offering our services to those who need them. It costs us £10 per guest per day to provide a warm bed, breakfast, a hot evening meal and a wide range of services. Please give whatever you can using one of the following options Why not donate quickly and securely via your mobile? Just text SFTS01 to 70070 followed by £2, £5 or £10. Bank Transfers and Standing Orders can be made direct to our Bank Account : Barclays Sort Code:[masked] Account:[masked] Gift Aid - If you are a UK Tax Payer please download, complete and send us this Gift Aid
so we can claim an extra 25% of any amounts you donate directly to SFTS from the HMRC! Thank you.

    Thanks to everybody for their generosity. We donated about £140 cash plus lots of goodies to Shelter from the Storm. They were VERY pleased. Special thanks to Veronique for the collection she added to our own. If you're minded remind us where it came from V.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
