Inner City Helping Homeless helped 125 people sleeping rough across Dublin city last night.
After a drop in homeless figures following the ban on evictions during the pandemic, the charity says the number of people needing its help is starting to rise again.
This year's winter appeal is now underway.
Head of communications with ICHH, Brian O'Loughlin, outlined what the charity needs.
He said: "We're asking people to donate second-hand clothes, hats, scarfs, gloves, toiletries and non-perishable foods as we provide food parcels to families and pensioners right throughout the lockdown.
"We're asking people to clear out the wardrobes while the lockdown is on, and go out and buy some of the items we distribute to people every single night.
"As we head into the winter, hats, scarves, gloves and warm clothes will be a lifesaver for people."
Last night the ICHH outreach teams were out on the streets of Dublin as they assisted 125 people, 94 men and 31 women, who slept on our streets and needed our support.

It comes as the charity called for more hotel rooms to be made available for homeless people in Dublin.
Last week, a night cafe opened at The Mendicity Institute to provide a safe space for people during the winter.
It will give people access to showers, sanitising stations and internet facilities.
