Ways to Give

You can help by donating your time, money, skills and prayers.

Raise money for Mary’s Meals

There are many ways to support Mary’s Meals. From setting up a regular donation, to leaving a gift in your will, to marking a special occasion with a gift – your kindness is building a brighter future for children living in extreme poverty.

However you choose to give, we’re grateful for your support.

Donate to one of our charity shops

We currently have six charity shops around Scotland – in Oban, Lochgilphead, Troon, Glasgow, Dunblane, and Inverkeithing. These shops are managed by our shop managers and supported by our network of volunteers.

Our shops rely on the many donations of pre-owned goods we receive to stock the shops and you can donate goods at any one of our shops or if you live in the Glasgow area you can also donate at our warehouse at 25 Glentanar Rd, Glasgow G22 7SF. Some of our locations can take small electrical items, please contact your local shop.

Unfortunately, there are a few things that we can't accept – damaged or broken toys, pillows and duvets, video and music cassettes, large items of furniture, car seats, push chairs and prams, safety equipment, perishable goods, items made with real fur or ivory, candles without instructions, and non-CE marked toys.

If you have an item to donate that you think may be of particular value, please let us know. We would love for your donation to help feed as many children as possible.

2 Million Children graphic

We're now feeding 2,279,941 children every school day.

But more than 64 million primary school-age children are out of school around the world. In order to survive, they have to work or beg. Even if they do make it into the classroom, hunger affects their ability to learn.
