People experiencing homelessness lack even the most basic items that the non-homeless take for granted. Black Pack Australia makes a difference by providing a pack full of food and essential items for those sleeping rough.
Talking to people living on the streets of our cities, we have created different types of bags that each solve a problem exactly when they’re needed:
- From breakfast to lunch and in between, we can offer someone a solid meal to help get them through the day.
- We also offer toiletries and sanitary items for those in need, because feeling clean and fresh makes all the difference to a person’s confidence and well-being.
- The Black Pack Sanitary Pack takes care of a person’s hygiene needs for up to an entire week and contains shampoo, conditioner, body wash, toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, dental floss and sanitary items such as pads and tampons
Thanks to some amazingly generous sponsors and years of experience we’ve been able to keep cost low and that’s essential to keep the packs going out.
As little as $5 gives a homeless person dignity and choice and allows them to eat and drink the same things that everyone else gets to enjoy.
Thank you all so very much! Thanks to your wonderful and very generous donations we have been able to start replenishing our supplies to make sure people affected by lockdown have access to basic food and hygiene items. This is just part of what we have purchased with your donations
