As the winter nights set in and Birmingham prepares for the festive season, the homeless community is struggling to stay warm. With your help, LoveBrum will provide them with a bag of essential items to make the colder months a little easier.
This year, due to COVID-19, our Bags For Brummies campaign will work a little differently...
Unfortunately, following the government's guidelines, we have decided to forgo our bag packing sessions, therefore we will not be accepting donated items.
Instead, we have partnered with Hope Revolution and together we have created an online store with an array of essential items for you to purchase. Browse the exact items our causes need, place your order and Hope Revolution will deliver the bags directly to their doors.
Causes receiving our 'Bag's For Brummies' include:
SIFA Fireside support adults who are homeless and vulnerable by meeting their immediate needs (like access to showers and a health clinic) and long-term needs by creating sustainable solutions and opportunities. They help each individual feel confident and determined as well as warm and comfortable.
St Basils works with young people aged 16-25 who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, helping over 5000 young people per year across the West Midlands region with specific services in Birmingham, Coventry, Leamington Spa, Sandwell, Solihull, Walsall, Warwickshire, Worcestershire and the Wyre Forest.
Let's Feed Brum
Let’s Feed Brum provides essential supplies and friendships to those living on our streets. They help start conversations and signpost the services already helping tackle the city's homelessness issue.
LoveBrum is a registered charity that supports hidden gem projects across Birmingham that are often volunteer led and that deliver real change, with outcomes that can be seen, measured, enjoyed, and loved.
They support the ‘hard-to-reach’ projects; those causes that do not receive the platform or funding that they probably deserve. They aim to support over 36 projects per year, and to reach out to all corners of our city to remind people how great Birmingham is.
Every penny raised from fundraising and individual memberships stays in Birmingham and goes straight to the chosen causes. LoveBrum encourage everyone to get involved and unite businesses and individuals across Birmingham.
