While I took this photo there was a 62 year old lady whom I personally know huddled down in a sleeping bag in a park, trying to keep warm but more importantly keep safe. The problem of homelessness in Melbourne is just getting worse. I’ve never seen so many people sleeping rough.

As every year passes we learn more about what’s needed out there on the streets and the biggest call now is for sleeping bags. […]
With a massive car load of your very generous donations we headed off to Ballarat yesterday for our first School Project packing day!

Three different types of backpacks were made. Kinder to lower primary, upper primary and high […]
