King's community outreach
Through the Hot Chocolate Society, King’s students run outreach sessions in Westminster and Southwark. During these outreach sessions, students offer hot drinks and snacks to rough sleepers to initiate conversations, build friendships and try to understand homelessness from those who experience it.
The Hot Chocolate Society also organise fundraising and speaker events to raise awareness of the problems homeless people face. The students use the money they raise to buy basic hygiene products, such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, wet wipes and sanitary pads. These items are distributed in care packages as part of ‘Project Santa’, the Hot Chocolate Society’s annual Christmas drive.
