Donate goods

Donating goods to St Mungo's is another way you can help people affected by homelessness.

What items do we accept?

  • Clean clothes
  • New socks, underwear and towels
  • Toiletries that are sealed, and well-known brands
  • Full, sealed packets of dry, non perishable food within their sell by date
  • Furniture and soft furnishings can only be accepted if they are new, and if they meet fire safety standards. Furniture must be Crib Factor 5 standard and soft furnishings, including all curtains, blinds and bedding, will need to be flame retardant and meet the BS5687 standard

Please note that we cannot accept used household items (including electrical items) and the final decision on accepting any gifts will be made by the project manager or staff.

Please also be aware that we have partnered with FlowAid who provide all our sanitary products so we do not accept these donations.  If you wish to donate these items please donate directly to FlowAid here

Thank you for considering donating goods to one of our projects. Unfortunately, we do not have the capacity to collect and store items.

If you have any items that we accept from the list above, please contact our Supporter Care team at supportercare@mungos.org or 020 8600 3000 who will put you in touch with a suitable service.

Please remember that the final decision on accepting any gifts will be made by the project manager or staff. 

 

If you are a company, please contact your St Mungo’s account manager to talk about donating goods. We only accept donations from our current corporate partners.
