DONATE A SLEEP KIT TO A VULNERABLE PERSON EXPERIENCING HOMELESSNESS
This month help us provide vital sleep kits to vulnerable people at risk or experiencing homelessness.
You can provide comfort in a crisis to a mother & child escaping domestic violence, a teen kicked out of home entering a youth shelter or someone who lost their job and home due to the pandemic.
“We have noted a 600% increase in calls for assistance and one of our services have noted 132 new families needing help within 1 month. These supplies would be greatly and thankfully received and needed.” Indigo Junction, WA.
Each sleep kit provides the dignity and security of a little piece of home to call their own, to people who are entering temporary accommodation. This seemingly small gesture makes an incredible difference to people who are turning to homeless shelters and services at an extremely difficult time in their lives.
In partnership with Sheridan Australia, we are celebrating 2 years of the SleepSafe program. Thanks to the generous support of donors and customers, the initiative has raised over $561,000 to deliver 37,400 sleep kits to 296 local community organisations across Australia.
Help us make sure everyone has access to a safe and secure night’s sleep.
”When women and children first arrive at their room at Bonnie's they are greeted with the beautiful sheet sets and towels included in the kits. That first night is often the first safe night's sleep they have had in a long time.~ Bonnie Support Services, NSW.
”This amazing donation will help families on low incomes - sole parents, asylum seekers and those who have lost jobs due to COVID and doing it tough.~ Camcare Access Health and Community, VIC
”As a centre who runs off limited funds, having these bed sheets and towels donated to the Townsville Drop In Centre, means we can afford to help individuals and families with other much need essential items.~ Althea Projects. Townsville, QLD
