2022 Winter Warmer Pack Campaign

As the freezing cold temperatures and dark winter months continue, many thousands of individuals and families in the UK will experience some form of homelessness.  With eviction notices dropping on doormats, introduction of punitive universal credit; lack of secure work; rent and cost of living rises, these are just some the reasons why people face homelessness and the harsh reality of sleeping on the streets, sofa surfing or desperately trying to find shelter in sheds and garages.

Each year at this time, Hand on Heart support hundreds of people facing homelessness with our Winter Warmer Pack Campaign. 🍂❄️🍁

The project will serve winter essential items to rough sleepers during these cold dark months.

In addition, HoH will continue to support evacuees from Afghanistan who are settling in the UK and provide new clothes to refugees in Bristol and South Gloucestershire.

About the Packs

In total, a record-breaking 1100 Winter Warmer Packs 🎒will be assembled and distributed to vulnerable groups in February.

The project will be supported by Hand on Hearts dedicated and trusted volunteers. In addition to Set up and Distribution teams, a staggering 47 families, 2 schools and 1 scouts club will be recruited (see Get Involved page) to help assemble the 1100 drawstring bags.

Each pack will be filled with essential winter items such as

  • joggers
  • thermals (top and bottom)
  • thermal socks (3 pairs)
  • underwear (3 pairs)
  • winter gloves
  • woolly hats
  • deodorants
  • wet wipes
  • toothbrush/toothpaste
  • hand sanitiser
  • face masks x 10

The guest will receive all the items in a quality drawstring bag.

In addition, sleeping bags and hundreds of blankets, mattresses and bottled water will be handed out at 7 Outreach Drives.
