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 quarterly collections of items for Start-Up Packs. A collection box will be placed in the church on the Sundays in January, April, July & October.
