Black Friday – Help the Homeless Campaign


Are you looking to give this Black Friday?

FirstLight Trust’s Black Friday campaign offers an alternative to the commercialism surrounding Black Friday and invites people to donate to support somebody in need.

Help a homeless person see the light out of the darkness.

We always see a spike in homelessness over the winter months. We know too with the increased cost of living that homelessness amongst veterans is becoming an even greater problem.

How we help

We are effective in the work we are doing. More detail on how we help homeless veterans can be found here

By donating, you will be sharing the gift of food, warmth and shelter with people most in need.
