Give one more gift this Christmas
Updated: Nov 3, 2021
We all know that Christmas can be a lonely time for many, particularly if you’re homeless or without family support. HARC (Homeless and Rootless at Christmas) has been providing a safe and warm day shelter over the Christmas period for over thirty years, offering free meals, a warm environment, company and essential clothing. On average, our HARC team of volunteers welcome around 100 guests each day during the week we are open.
HARC is totally funded by donations and grants, and is proud to be ‘for Sheffield residents, supported by Sheffield residents.’ Are you and your students/staff able to help with either of these two initiatives?
Run a race, hold a bake sale or shake a bucket at a carol concert - no idea is a bad idea! Once you’ve raised funds, you can donate the money to HARC either via Wonderful Payments or PayPal,and it will be used to pay for the venue we hire (Victoria Hall), high quality food (PJ Taste) and some essential staffing. We also gift other charities providing support to homeless and rootless people in Sheffield throughout the year.
