Crisis at Christmas Wishlist - Oxford

Our Christmas Wishlist 


This Christmas, Crisis Skylight Oxford will be providing a service of food parcels, clothing, Christmas hampers and remote or socially distanced activities as well as practical and emotional support.

Christmas can often be a really lonely time for people experiencing homelessness issues and this year we have the added complexities of Coronavirus. We plan to keep our members connected and safe during this time and items you donate will go directly towards people as gifts or essential items. 

We have set up an Wishlist of items that we know will be appreciated and needed over this Winter period. We are very grateful for every donation, big or small.
