Bringing hope where there is despair
When you donate goods, food or clothing to The Whitechapel Mission, you impact the lives of the poor and homeless in London. This year, our donors and volunteers helped The Whitechapel Mission provide more than 100,000 breakfasts, 34,000 bags of groceries, and 45,300 articles of clothing to men and women in desperate need of help. We rely on donated food and clothing to meet these important needs.
We do not operate charity shops! Anything donated to the Whitechapel Mission will be given directly to people who are homeless.
We gratefully accept donations seven days a week at 212 Whitechapel Road, London E1 1BJ (Click here for directions to The Whitechapel Mission). It is always helpful to call ahead. We do not typically pick up donations, but if you are having difficulty delivering your donation, please call Jenny Hughes on 03000 111 400 to inquire about a pick-up or book a collection on-line.
Some basic guidelines:
If you are considering a food or clothing drive at your congregation, organization, workplace or school, please let us know. We will work with you to launch a successful drive.
We have staff available to receive your donations and help unload your vehicle on weekdays from 5am until 3pm
We have staff available to receive your donations and help unload your vehicle on weekends from 5am until noon. We would always recommend letting us know you plan to deliver at the weekend.
If it is not convenient to deliver during these hours, please ring the office on 03000 111 400 and we can attempt to arrange for a member of staff to be available at other times.
Please do not attempt to make your delivery outside of these hours without arranging it with us in advance. Items left on our doorstep will never get to us.

What we are short of, what we are desperately short of, what we have enough of and what we have an abundance of.
