We welcome our community to help us collect warm winter coasts in good condition to support Reaching Out in the Inner West of Melbourne.
Since 2005, Reaching Out in the Inner West has been completely self-funded while providing home cooked vegetarian meals, non-perishable food, toiletries, blankets, sleeping bags, pillows and warm clothing to people experiencing homelessness or generally struggling.
2020 was particularly challenging with the groups needing supporting growing from approximately 80 a week to 200.
With the motto “Love all, serve all, help ever, hurt never”, the group of volunteers meets every Monday at 5.45pm in Nicholson Street Mall in Footscray and welcomes volunteers to join.
For the next month, warm coats can be dropped at the Seddon Community Bank Branch, Monday – Friday, 9.30am – 5.00pm
