Helping Hands

Our doors may be closed at the moment, but our storehouse certainly isn’t!

At Renewal we are family, and we want to care for everybody in the absolute best way we can.

Helping Hands supplies those who are most in need with food, toiletries and other essentials. But we need your help! You can donate food at both our Solihull and Chelmsley Wood locations, at the Drop-off Points outside the front doors of each building. You can also give financially to help support the purchase of food and keep our day-to-day storehouse levels high. See below on how to drop off food and make a financial donation.

Your contributions will help to feed the most vulnerable among us at this difficult time; anything you can give will make a real difference!

Summer Appeal

A lot of us look forward to a Summer break, lots of plans and meet-up’s with friends and families. For some families, this won’t be the case, the Summer holiday is a stressful time with no support and feeling isolated. We want to be able to give any child referred to Helping Hands a ‘Bag of Joy’ which will include a colouring book, an activity pack, some baking ideas and colouring pencils.

We would love you to support us in doing this! Follow the link to go to the Amazon wish list to help us pack the bags of joy!


Amazon Wish List

We have moved out of our emergency response status and have begun to establish a little more rhythm to our deliveries!

We know that people from many locations were giving to the work of Helping Hands so we have still got our Amazon Wish list open! On this list are more of the non-perishable items but nevertheless essential. We have also put items on here for our microwave boxes and more of the ‘luxury’ items to give out when and if we have them in stock.

Just click on the link, select some items you’d like to donate from the list and when you click purchase, change the delivery to the Helping Hands address option you’ll see available in your delivery options.

If you are a Prime member you can make use of this on a lot of products!


Helping Hands Food Bank

You can give financially to help support the purchase of food,  keep our storehouse levels high and maintain our day-to-day operations.
