We will be giving shoe boxes of useful gifts to our overnight guests from the Cambridge Churches Homelessness Project on 28th December. As far as possible, the contents of each box need to be identical. We’d like to assemble 15 boxes. Any unused items will be donated to Jimmy’s.
Could you please supply a wrapped shoe box (lid wrapped separately), with gifts? We will organise the boxes on Wednesday 21st December, so please bring them to our carol services on Sunday 18th December.
Please try to include:
- Hat, scarf, gloves
- Socks, boxers
- Men’s toiletries (small sizes that are easy to carry) eg Toothbrush, toothpaste, reusable razor & blades and shaving foam, lip balm (eg small Vaseline), washcloth, soap, shampoo, deodorant, comb, brush – NOT travel towels (we already have those) or mouthwash or hand sanitizer that contains alcohol
- Metal water flasks
- Chocolate or sweets
- Travel games or playing cards
- Cereal bars, other high calorie and healthy snacks
- Dried fruit
Sometimes we have a canine companion staying, so we could also include a box with dog biscuits, collapsible bowls, leads, collars, dog coats (as per the suggestions from Jimmy’s)
