Thanks to all those people who participated in our recent Food for Fines initiative. We collected over 1300 food items (30+ boxes), over 200 more items then last year. Quite a few food items were also given to us by people without fines and by those with fines who wanted to give a bit extra.
Mission Australia staff have now collected the boxes of food and this year the food will be going to a facility for homeless men in Manly called the Fairlight Centre. It will also be distributed to people involved in the Rawson Project. This project provides support, including food, for people at risk of homelessness in Sydney’s inner-west.
Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
