WINTER is here and with it cold, biting weather that means sparing a thought for the homeless and disadvantaged struggling to stay warm.

Community Support Frankston, partnering with Frankston Council, has set up a “Wall of Kindness” at both the CSF office in Beach Road and at Frankston North Community Centre.

Racks of donated new or near new winter coats will be available on racks to try on for size and warmth.

It is the third year “Wall of Kindness” has been organised by CSF in Frankston after the first such campaign in Iran for homeless or disadvantaged people to be able to anonymously donate or swap winter jackets.

“Sometimes the smaller acts of kindness make the biggest difference,” CSF manager Steven Phillips said.

Hundreds of organisations and individuals have donated winter coats in Frankston.

Donations are still welcome at CSF, 35 Beach Road, Frankston (Monday-Friday, 9-11am) or at Frankston North Community Centre, 26 Mahogany Avenue, Frankston North (Monday-Friday, 9-11am and 1-3pm).
