On Wednesday 25th October, Devonshire Square will be launching a food bank collection initiative in aid of the Whitechapel Mission, a local charity organization that has been supporting the homeless and marginalised since 1876.
The Whitechapel Mission serves breakfast to the homeless each and every morning of the year, starting from 8am, and provides a wide range of services for those in need, including a day centre, skills training and career advice, activity programmes and specialist support for complex needs.
The charity serves 350 breakfast most days, and they are currently in the urgent need of some basic food products, such as sugar, coffee, biscuits, honey, instant hot chocolate, porridge and cornflakes.
In response to their appeal, Devonshire Square will be collecting food donations for the charity until 15th November.
If you wish to take part in the DSQ food bank appeal in aid of the Whitechapel Mission, you can find the full list of the items that the charity desperately needs by clicking here; you can bring the food items that you wish to donate to the ground floor reception of 6 Devonshire Square, at any time, from 9am to 5pm, from Monday to Friday.
All donations will be delivered to the Whitechapel Mission on 16th November via dedicated courier.
We would like to warmly thank each and every one who will be joining the DSQ foodbank collection in aid of this wonderful charity.
DSQ ‘Compassion in Motion’
The DSQ food bank appeal in aid of the Whitechapel Mission is part of ‘Compassion in Motion’, a programme of charitable initiatives launched by Devonshire Square to raise awareness of highly deserving homeless charities Whitechapel Mission – which operates locally – and The Connection, London’s busiest homeless charity, which provides support to homeless in Central London. The programme also aims at supporting Change Please, a fantastic social enterprise which runs coffee outlets in various locations across UK, including Devonshire Square, and utilises 100% of the profits generated by their sales to support people experiencing homelessness.
