Helping the Homeless in the Community

The charity operates to assist and support families and individuals experiencing homelessness by providing packs of household goods, cleaning items, food and toiletries, donated by individuals, faith/community groups and other organisations.

St. Mark’s is supporting the work of Start-Up Stirling by holding Retiral Collections at our morning services on the last Sunday of the month.  This allows the purchase of fresh fruit and vegetables for the food packs and of essential items for                                               the starter packs. We encourage everyone to also donate items for the food and starter packs.

Some of the items welcomed for inclusion in the starter packs.
