The unfortunate reality for many peope today is we're only a few pay checks away from homelessness. Unemployment, unexpected illness or family separation can quickly drive people into homelessness. And with low vacancy rates and increased rents, it can be hard to get back into a stable home.
For those doing it tough, who may be sleeping in a car or on a park bench, winter is a frightening time of freezing nights and little warmth. We are asking the local community to "Share Some Warmth" this winter.
You can donate blanket and food items at the following locations:-
Penrith & St Marys Libraries - Westfields - Penrith PCYC - Penrith ANZ - Penrith CBD Corp and Vintage FM Studios.
All financial contributions will assist people in need. You may like to pay $110 for a Swag which will provide initial warmth for a Rough Sleeper. Perhaps you would pay for a night's temporary accommodation whilst more permanent housing is sourced. Some people need heating for their home. Wentworth work not only to provide a home but also the support to sustain that home.
All donations will assist in providing some immediate warmth for someone who requires your help. All donations over $2 are tax deductible.
Are donations tax deductible? Yes
Will I receive a receipt for my donation?
Yes, immediately sent to you by email when approved.
