Donate Items

Thank you for taking the time to visit this page. We rely very much on the generosity of our supporters and as such, our stock can vary from day to day. You can order directly from ‘Give Today’ which contains a great selection of items that we need or you can use the lists below as a guide which are also updated regularly but are subject to change.

Donations for our projects can be dropped off at our base – Wood Street Mission, 26 Wood Street, M3 3EF (please note this is our only official drop off point), Monday to Friday from 8.30-4.30 or if you’d like to request a collection please email with details of what you are donating, your name, contact number and full address of collection. If you want to check which areas we can collect from, please check here. We also welcome donations of new items directly from the retailer to the address above.

Thank you for your support.

Although we are collecting items in the green column below, we are also specifically collecting for our Smart Start school uniform project at the moment. You can find more details on our Smart Start page.
