SAHSSI and Lake Illawarra Police District combined forces for Homelessness Week 2018 out the front of Woolworths Shellharbour Stocklands this morning. In two hours the community donated 4 trolleys full of groceries that SAHSSI has now distributed across some of our sites in Wollongong – two women’s refuges, one temporary accommodation site and our head office for women and children in need.
- Lake Illawarra Police District who donated $200 worth of groceries and helped coordinate the day
- Anna Watson MP – Member for Shellharbour for coming and saying hello in support and also donating bags of groceries
- Stephen Jones MP for coming and saying hello in support and also donating bags of groceries
- Stockland Shellharbour for assisting us with a venue
AND so many friendly members of the community for stopping for a friendly chat, donating food and/or signing the petition to support the national campaign (Everybody’s Home) to reduce homelessness!
