My story

[p]At The Whitechapel Mission they have been helping the homeless since 1876 and see up to 300 people through their doors each day. How do they help? They do this in many ways which include offering hot breakfasts and lunch, showers, clothing, hairdressing, optician, medical care, dentistry, befriending and advising on: night shelters, hostels, benefits, identification documents, form filling, debt counselling, entitlements, finding appropriate help. Among these important services they will also charge a mobile phone. [/p][p]I volunteered one morning a few weeks ago on the Breakfast shift. I was on tea/coffee making duties, and the kind, humorous, mostly polite "clients" I served that morning totally opened my eyes to what I envisage as a homeless person and left me feeling very humble. [/p][p]So if you feel you would be able to give a little to help this great organization then I would be very grateful as I know they undoubtedly will be too.[/p][p]If you have no cash to give perhaps you have some small toiletries that may be unwanted gifts lurking in the back of the bathroom cabinet, as these are given out to those who want a shower or to freshen up. I would be happy to take receipt of these and pass them along to them.[/p][p]Thank you for taking the time in reading this and for anything you can donate x[/p]
