2020 Bendigo Community Coat Drive


Winter is all but here so it's traditionally time for our Bendigo Community Coat Drive.

With the help of partners AFL Central Victoria and Pristine Dry Cleaners we collected, cleaned and distributed a record 2700 coats and blankets last year - what an incredibly generous community we have! Well, we're going to have to rely on that generosity a bit more this year. With the present Coronavirus threat and the restrictions we are all living under to stay safe, it's just too hard to run our traditional coat drive this year. So, we're going online. We're asking people to donate money to our Bendigo Community Coat Drive fundraising campaign so we can buy new coats that will be safe to distribute.

Wonderful partners such as Bendigo Foodshare, Haven Home Safe and Eaglehawk Community House are already on board to help us hand coats out.

And while our long-term and much-valued partner Pristine Dry Cleaners is not in a position to help us collect and clean coats this year, they will help us promote this great cause.

We think this way we can ensure the safety of everyone involved and still get coats to those in need during the bitter Winter months.

We totally understand given the present hardships brought on Coronavirus that not everyone will be able to donate and support the cause. We ask that people feel no pressure to give but only do so if you have the means.
