Gifts in kind

Most homeless people don't have many clothes, toiletries and other personal possessions. Your gifts and contributions are gratefully received but we have very limited storage facilities so please phone Kirsty on 01865 304600 to check we are able to take them.

Clothing and toiletries

Many of the people who arrive at O'Hanlon House don't have a change of clothes - not even spare underwear. At O'Hanlon House we rely on your donations to stock our emergency store.

We often need: sweaters and sweatshirts, t-shirts, tracksuit bottoms, men's and women's underwear, socks, hats, gloves, scarves, toothpaste and toothbrushes. If you fly overseas, save your free airline socks and toothbrush - one of our residents would love to have them!


We are very pleased to receive donations of single fitted sheets, single duvets, towels and pillowcases.

Household goods

We have limited storage space and encourage donors to give household items such as furniture to the furniture store run by Emmaus Oxford. Our clients use the store when they move into independent accommodation.

Help with deliveries

Sometimes people offer gifts but are unable to deliver them to us. Could you collect and deliver donated gifts, either on a regular or an occasional basis? Please phone the Kirsty at O'Hanlon House on 01865 304600.

Start a collection point

Some of our supporters operate collection points where people can donate clothing, bedding or household goods. For example, a local doctor's surgery has a sock donation box in a corner of the surgery. When the box is full, the socks are delivered to O'Hanlon House.

Could your workplace, club or association organise a collection point? Please phone Jason at O'Hanlon House on 01865 304600.

Thank you for your support.
