CHELSEA Care Works is calling on schools, businesses and residents to help the homeless ahead of Homeless Week running from 6-12 August, with the theme “Ending Homelessness Together”.
Mordialloc MP Tim Richardson is again partnering with Chelsea Care Works and the Mentone Community Assistance and Information Bureau to help support the homeless and struggling people in the community.
“I know the people of Mordialloc can be generous,” Mr Richardson said.
“Last year’s food drive and fundraiser was a massive success and I know this year’s will be too.”
Groups and individuals can donate a can or coin or more for Homeless Week during the month of August.
Food and funds will go to the Free Food Pantry managed by Chelsea Care Works and the emergency relief supply run by the Mentone bureau, staffed by volunteers.
Contact Reverend Judi Turnham of Chelsea Care Works, on 9773 0301 or Tim Richardson on 9772 4544 or at tim.Richardson@parliament.vic.gov.au for more information and to coordinate donation drop-off times and locations.
