Socks and Chocs is not only about money,  we simply want to inspire you to make a donation or run a collection of actual socks and chocs near where you live.  In other words “do what you can”. Yes money is useful but if times are hard just one pair of socks will help someone.

Other items of clothing are useful to homeless centres too but we don’t have the capacity to store them. Please arrange delivery direct to the centre and if you are happy for us to count in our “Inspired by” totals then let me know the totals.

VIRGIN MONEY GIVING

We have a Virgin Money Giving page if you would like to donate there:  VIRGIN MONEY GIVING.

You can also set up your own Virgin Money Giving Page for any sponsored event you wish to do.  All you need to do is go HERE and as you set up your page simply search for Socks and Chocs and up we come.

 

TEXT GIVING

If, however you do prefer to donate cash, we can use that to buy sleeping bags or other target items. You can text donate.  The team do not get paid for what they do and they do not claim expenses.   Socks and Chocs has unavoidable outgoings to keep the charity legal (insurance, training costs, accountancy fees etc).  Apart from these necessary fees all other money donated is spent on items needed and requested by the homeless centres we work with.

If you want to donate anything by text then you simply text the word SOCK08 £2 to 70070 (obviously substitute the “2” for the amount you wish to donate.  Thank you.

Where to donate

The following places can take donations directly or through the post. Please make sure you write Socks and Chocs clearly on the package.

If you click on the “pins” on the map it will highlight addresses we have helped or who would like help with more added weekly. Check to see if there is somewhere near you.

Some of these places will collect and distribute to homeless centres.  Others are actually homeless centres and take items direct.  Either way Socks & Chocs reach those in need.

It is always worth ringing to check you have stuff they need and want as I don’t want anyone to have a wasted journey.

 

 

 

We don’t have a central collection point or a head office as such so we would encourage you to make donations directly to your local homeless shelter. If you need help identifying a local homeless shelter, contact us.  If you find a homeless centre not listed that either you have donated to or that can take donations direct, please let us know.  We will add them here.

Thank you for being inspired enough to read our website.

Now please do your bit with our ethos of “Lots of people doing a little is better than a few doing a lot!”
