- Year of past OR future Camino
- Camino Francés/Finesterre (Spring 2017), Camino Del Norte (Summer 2019)
Hi everyone, just finished my first Camino a few days ago (Francés + Finisterre). I'm not sure if many people know about this, but the Convento/Iglesia de San Francisco accepts clothes and shoes donations that they'll give to the local homeless population. It's an immediate opportunity to give back, and convenient if you are looking to lighten your pack anyway. The church is close to the cathedral, but instead of going through the front entrance, the donation center is on the side of the complex, on Rua dos Castiñeiros. Enter what looks to be an albergue and someone will accept your donation. Thanks for considering.
