100/100 Homeless Project

Statistically December is the most joyful and giving month of the year. However it is closely followed by January, the most depressing month of the year. The weather, the come down from the festive period and poor finances are but a few factors that affect us. Now take a moment to think of those living on the streets. Of those that don’t have family with them.


To help spread the festive joy, we are proud to announce the return of the United Relief 100/100 Homeless Project. The aim: To collect and purchase a range of necessities throughout the festive period in December and distribute these packs to the homeless in January.


There are multiple ways you can get involved - 


1. You can donate to our JustGiving page. Any amount is appreciated! We will use these funds to purchase the items and create the packs for distribution. 

2. You can get involved in our #JumperAndBlanket collection. We are aiming to collect as many pre-loved (but in good condition) jumpers and blankets as possible and include them in our distribution packs. You can also drop these off at one of our many drop off points.


3. You can get involved in the distribution of the packs. Come on, we can’t do it alone!
