Donations and Collections

Help4Wales Foundation relies on the generous support of volunteers and the community to offer many of our critical support services. Donations are vital to help those in need survive and begin rebuilding their lives. We currently accept a wide range of items for people and animals including food, clothes, blankets and toys.

We also carry out a number of collections across Wales often in local supermarkets and in established community facilities. These collections give us an opportunity to meet local people, collect donations and introduce our services to new volunteers. We are always on the look out for passionate individuals to get involved in our collections and fundraising opportunities.
