10k Steps Challenge

10k steps banner

Our 10k Steps Challenge offers a fun and accessible way for co-workers to connect. Staff are invited to walk 10,000 steps a day in one month and raise funds via JustGiving for men and women struggling with homelessness in Ireland. Teams can connect to share progress, show off their walking routes, and ultimately motivate each other while supporting vulnerable people in Ireland. We will send each brave participant a fundraising pack and the MQI team will be there every step of the way to support!

For more information on the 10k challenge and getting started, you can contact Emma at (01) 524 0965 or email.

Socks and Jocks Collections

People sleeping rough on our streets come to MQI for food, a hot shower and change of clothes. It’s the foundation of building relationships with people who are severely marginalised and vulnerable. Clients are often clinically depressed and suffering from poor mental health or struggling with addiction. Their way back can begin with something as basic as new socks and underwear. 

Items must be new and packaged in respect for personal dignity. Our storage space is limited so please call the fundraising office at 01 524 0139 to inquire what we’re currently running short of. Generally clients always need:

  • Men’s socks and jocks
  • Ladies’ underwear, sports bras and socks
  • Feminine hygiene products
  • Bath towels
  • Miniature ‘hotel-sized’ soaps and shampoos
  • Disposable Razors and shaving foam/gel
  • Toothbrushes / toothpaste
  • Hats, scarves and gloves for winter
  • Suntan lotion for summer
