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.
