Ryan’s supporting The Shoebox Full of Love Appeal and he needs your help!

Ryan’s Shoebox Full of Love Appeal returns for the second year running!  

You might remember last year when Ryan, who uses our Making Days service in Liverpool, did a big call-out for donations to the Shoebox Full of Love Appeal. The appeal was a massive success, which meant lots of disadvantaged and homeless people were given the gift of warm socks, toiletries and food in December.    

With the festive season just around the corner, this year will be no different and Ryan is looking for more donations to support the appeal once again. He’s even created and performed his own poem about showing love and kindness to homeless people in hopes of encouraging people to donate.

Ryan’s commitment to making a difference   

Ryan’s commitment is a reminder that we’ve all got the power to make a positive impact in our community. By donating to this charity, you’re not just providing essential items – you’re sending a message of hope, love, and solidarity.  

 What to donate     

The Shoebox Full of Love Appeal are looking for warm clothes, hats and gloves, long-dated food and toiletries. You can donate preloved items as long as they’re in good condition. 

They’re also asking for donations for children who might not get a gift to open at Christmas.  

The only things they can’t accept are alcohol or anything sharp that could be harmful to someone. 

How to donate     

If you’d like to make a donation or donate some shoe boxes, please bring them to Eleanor Rathbone House and pop them in the donation box. You can also donate items to your local Making Days centre. Or you can reach out directly to the Shoebox Full of Love Appeal on their Facebook page.

The cut-off point for donations is the 10th of December.
