A Call to Action from Help Our Homeless MK
Help Our Homeless MK community group are now in desperate need of storage space (either in, or close to Central Milton Keynes) to house donations they collect to run their services for homeless and badly-housed people in Milton Keynes.
So far the group has been working out of two garages, but have recently had to hand them back to the owners and are now down to just one garage and working from the homes of the many volunteers that support the group!
Ideally they need approximately 600 sq ft to allow space for volunteers to help sort items and, if possible, a space to allow homeless people to drop in for tea and a chat.
Do you have a unit or office available that they could use as a base at no cost?
Help Our Homeless has been running since 2014 and is run entirely by volunteers. The group provides much-needed donations of clothing, shoes, bedding etc to homeless people in Milton Keynes. Volunteers go out three times a week with the soup run and provide help and support to over 30 homeless people every evening.
If you have some space that you could make available, or know of anyone that can help, please contact Anna at Community Action: MK at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 01908 661623 or contact Marion at email@example.com.
