Wests Group Macarthur Winter Appeal
Today, thousands of families in Macarthur are at crisis point at risk of becoming homeless or already homeless and heading into the coldest months of the year.
Through the Wests 2021 Winter Appeal – launching this week – we are hoping to make a small difference by collecting winter good including blankets, scarves, beanie and sleeping bags + more on behalf of the community.
New and handmade items from the below list (only) can be dropped into reception until July 5 h– only at Wests League Club. Tubs will be labelled and provided behind the reception desk/storeroom and in staff rooms and I will be helping to manage any overflow to ensure things are neat and tidy at all times. Please note, we will not turn away items from other venues, however will not have formal collection bins so please get in touch with me to help.
Donations will go directly to the Macarthur Homelessness Steering Committee who represent almost 20 organisations that provide support, counselling, food, clothing and of course roofs over heads for those that need it.
As an extension to the Winter appeal, we will also be hosting a Volunteer special event called “Love squared” in July, a knitting and crochet event for our members where we hope to create loads of beanies, scarfs and (10‘’) squares that will create blankets for those that need them this winter! Some knitting experience will be required. Stay tuned for more information or if you would like to help email email@example.com
