Every winter, we appeal for donations of essential items to distribute to rough sleepers and people in temporary accommodation to support them through the winter months.

We would like to thank everyone who has donated to our winter appeal. So far, we have distributed nearly 300 items to people thanks to the generosity of Gloucestershire.

Many of our companions led on this activity as a form of solidarity to people living on the streets. They have been homeless themselves and are now supported by Emmaus Gloucestershire, and feel like they are in the position to offer kindness that they once received.

We have currently put a hold on donations until our shops re-open. However, if you would like to get a backpack of items ready, please visit here to find out what items we need for our winter and summer appeals.
