The Advocate (Perth) - - WHAT'S ON -

REIWA and its agents are again supporting The Sal­va­tion Army’s an­nual Sleep­ing Bag Ap­peal to help the homeless dur­ing the colder months.

The ap­peal en­cour­ages West Aus­tralians to do­nate sleep­ing bags and blan­kets, which The Sal­va­tion Army dis­trib­utes to those in need.

REIWA pres­i­dent Hay­den Groves said for those liv­ing rough on our streets, the win­ter months were es­pe­cially dif­fi­cult.

“Most of us take it for granted that we have a roof over our head and a warm, safe place to sleep at night,” he said.

“How­ever, for the grow­ing num­ber of homeless peo­ple in our state, this is not their re­al­ity.

“The Salvos’ Sleep­ing Bag Ap­peal is a small way you can help bring some much-needed warmth and com­fort to those sleep­ing rough on our streets.

“West Aus­tralians are well known for their gen­eros­ity, so I en­cour­age every­one who is in a po­si­tion to help, to do­nate a sleep­ing bag or blan­ket to this very wor­thy cause.”

If you would like to be a part of the real es­tate in­dus­try’s sup­port of the homeless, you can do­nate new or freshly laun­dered sleep­ing bags or blan­kets at the fol­low­ing col­lec­tion points un­til June 22: HKY Real Es­tate, 12 Main Street, El­len­brook; Ro­ley­stone Real Es­tate, 2 Sol­diers Road, Ro­ley­stone; SABRE Real Es­tate, Unit 7, 151 James Street, Guild­ford.
