Cold Weather + Homeless & Vulnerable = We Need Your Warm Clothes!

 

Updated 6/3: Together with local residents, we have collected over 40 large bags of donations and made a huge difference to the lives of homeless and vulnerable people. Thank you

At this time of year, the first thing we notice is the temperature dropping and simply turning the boiler on isn’t an easy option for the homeless or those people in difficult and vulnerable situations.

With my 2017 resolution set to clear out my wardrobes, I quickly found myself with bags full of clothes that could go to someone who needed them most.

Jumpers, coats, jackets and all things warm are definitely a requirement of the amazing team of Street Safe Derby and I was more than happy to hand them over.

Only recently hearing about the team at Street Safe Derby, I was surprised and humbled that these amazing and ordinary everyday people go out every night to hand out not only clothes but hot and cold food to people across Derby that need it most.

CLOTHES DONATIONS REQUIRED. I need your help now please…

How many warm jackets, jumpers and coats do you have shoved away in a cupboard? I’m on a mission and I need all the help you can give me.

The drop off point:

Talk Staff’s offices in Belper on Wellington Court and we’re aiming to collect as many as we can! Our offices are open 8:30am to 5:30pm Monday to Friday (please refrain from leaving bags outside when not open).

Any help you can offer will be much appreciated and I’ll work hard to ensure they go to the people that need them most. Thank you.

    I would like to help with giving out fiid and clothes who do I speak to? I have probably got quite a lot. Also can I point out that homeless females need tampons and sanitary towels as a lot have to free been and I hate to imagine their embarrassment. .. I know it’s not a nice topic to talk about but an essential one.
