We sent a van load of toiletries, underwear, sleeping bags and sanitary items off to CoHealth Innerspace in Collingwood yesterday. 20 sleeping bags, 40 toiletries packs, 60 bottles of shampoo and conditioner and a six dozen pairs of new underwear will all be heading out to people experiencing homelessness and hardship around Melboune. A huge thank you to everyone who donates to us and to our fantastic volunteers for putting app of these packs together. We couldn’t do it without you.
We wish we had more photos to show but we’re once again thrilled to support Launch Housings Pathways Project to provide sleeping bags and camping gear for 40 kids experiencing homelessness and disadvantage to attend camp. The kids all head off today and we’re thrilled to be able to help out with swimming gear, towels, sleeping bags, toiletries and other items. We hope the kids all have a fantastic time at camp!
