How you can help

We are already planning for a cold winter and would welcome your involvement.

  • Finances - We need your financial support to make this work.
  • Donation Button Gifts - We are looking for gifts to help restore broken lives and broken families at this time of year, providing homeless men, women and children with hot meals, safe shelter, and hope. But this winter, your generosity gives them something more here at The Whitechapel Mission, a taste of family and the love we all crave. Thank you!
  • Winter - Sleeping bags, Woolen Gloves, Woolen Hats, and Gloves. During the winter, we are especially in need of warm outerwear: coats, jackets, hats, gloves, and scarves.
  • Clothing - Clean, new and gently used clothing of all types is helpful. Large sizes are especially helpful. We are always in need of new underwear/t-shirts and socks, new and gently used jeans and shoes, and professional clothing for those looking for work or re-entering the workforce.
  • Toiletries - new razors, toothbrushes, soap, toothpaste, deodorant, hand cream, shampoo. Many of our community members will come though our doors each morning looking to have a wash, clean their teeth and a shave. as many as 150 people a day will want to have a shower and choose clean clothing.

From March 29th, collections of donations can be arranged - this will need to be a no-contact collection.

We will always try to group collections together to make the collections as cost effective as we can. We ask you to bear in mind that our vehicles are very costly to run and therefore it is not possible for us to collect small donations, unless we can link the collection with others in the area.

We will very rarely collect from outside the M25 due to the time and cost implications.

We are not able to accept duvets and pillows. And we cannot accept pre-cooked food.

Rarely. Our entrance is in Maples Place, E1 1BJ and it has parking bays. These are usually full most of the day from 8am

It is possible to park outside of our carpark gates for a short time to unload (in the same road)

If you call us in advance and inform us of your vehicle registration number, we can have the gates open for you to park.

We cannot accept new volunteers at the moment. We are preparing for welcoming back our volunteers.

We are grateful for the interest in volunteering onsite, but we need to keep volunteers, guests and staff safe.
