Coats for the Homeless – Messages of thanks and 2018 update
Date Posted: 01/29/2018

“We extend our appreciation for the recent donation of 12 coats.

Due to the extreme coldness in Ceduna recently, our Homeless team donated the jackets to vulnerable people and clients who often sleep rough. We distributed the jackets to 8 men and 4 women. The response was amazing and the feedback positive. The majority of comments were ‘they are very warm and keep us dry’”.

Rebecca Tuohy, Programme Manager – Ceduna Generic Homelessness, SA

 

“Thank you to the Order of Malta for their very generous donation of coats for our visitors. They have literally saved lives by keeping homeless people warm, when they would otherwise have developed pneumonia with all its complications.”

Bryan, Director at The Shopfront, Perth, WA
