Christmas Shoe Box Appeal 2017

Shoebox appeal boxes

Our Christmas Shoe Box Appeal 2017 is officially launched - helping the homeless of Bedford this winter.

Please join us in helping the homeless in your local area, in the run up to Christmas. Simply take a shoe box from the pile in the main entrance to our Home Store and return to our Reception by 1st December 2017, filled with a selection from the list below:

PLEASE NOTE THAT DUE TO THE AMAZING SUCCESS OF THIS APPEAL, WE'VE RUN OUT OF EMPTY SHOE BOXES! WE'D REALLY APPRECIATE ANY SPARES YOU MAY HAVE AND ALSO IF YOU ARE ABLE TO PROVIDE YOUR OWN TO FILL, THAT WOULD BE VERY HELPFUL! (note added 14/11/2017)

Travel size toiletries
Toothpaste
Shaving products
Female hygiene products
Socks
Newly packaged underwear
Biscuits
Chocolate bars
Sweets

Emmaus Village Carlton will distribute the shoe boxes to the street homeless of Bedford at our fortnightly soup kitchen during November and December.

Thank you so much for your support.
