Shelter helps millions of people every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness through their advice, support, and legal services.
Each year, our team takes part in the shoebox appeal for the homeless. The collecting, wrapping, card writing, and sharing has become an annual tradition we enjoy doing. This year, due to the current restrictions we will be distributing shoe boxes where possible, and have additionally set up a JustGiving page to allow donations to go directly to ‘Shelter’ – a charity, which supports people experiencing homelessness.
Many people struggling with bad housing and homelessness have already endured the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic without a safe place to live. And now, Christmas will be spent in cramped bed and breakfasts, sleeping in cars, or in temporary accommodation miles away from family or friends.
No one should have to cope with such stress, fear and loneliness – let alone at this time of year. It’s unimaginable. But we can help people have an easier time this Christmas. If you’d also like to donate with us, please click here.
