Homelessness is on the increase in Manchester and it’s getting harder and harder to ignore. Christmas – a time for families, feasting and celebration- it can be a particularly hard time for those with nowhere to call home.
But there’s one easy way you can help to make life on the streets a little easier for the city’s homeless – and it won’t take you 2 minutes.
Manchester Street Angels are collecting donated items and are taking to the streets to deliver everyday essentials to those who have no home this christmas. Although the items only cost us a couple of quid, they can make a world of a difference to people on the streets.
If you don’t have time to donate an item, you can make a cash donation towards the cause on their Just Giving Page.
If you can donate, they are looking for the following items:
- Toothbrushes and toothpaste
- Soap/ shower gel
- Baby wipes and deoderant
- Hairbrushes/ combs
- Chocolate, sweets and biscuits
- Hats, scarves and gloves
- Warm socks
There are 14 collection points located across Manchester, which you can find here. The deadline for donations is 26th November.
An easy way to put a smile on someone’s face this Christmas!
