Winter warm-up appeal.

For the homeless, unemployed and those living on the poverty line, winter in Canberra can be a particularly difficult time of year. With temperatures hitting minus 5 degrees it’s hard to stay warm and look forward to each day, and no one should have to choose between keeping warm or being fed.

Which is why Communities@Work, with the support of Allhomes and local small businesses, are collecting donations of clothing to help disadvantaged Canberrans through its Winter Warm-Up Appeal.

This June, we’re asking you to support by donating blankets, sleeping bags, jumpers, scarves, beanies, gloves, business and special occasion clothing. If you have anything to spare please come into our office (3/43 Comrie Street, Wanniassa) between the hours of 9am-5pm to donate these clothing items. To give those in need our support and ensure their right to a warm winter.

Donations will be accepted from June 5th until June 22nd.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at 6171 2220.
