Sup­port Salvos’ sleep­ing bag drive

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Liftout: News -

REIWA and its agents are get­ting be­hind the Sal­va­tion Army’s an­nual Sleep­ing Bag Ap­peal and ask­ing West Aus­tralians to also sup­port to the cause.

The Sleep­ing Bag Ap­peal is part of the Salvos’ Win­ter Ap­peal to help the home­less in WA by col­lect­ing warm sleep­ing bags and blan­kets to dis­trib­ute to those in need.

REIWA pres­i­dent Hay­den Groves said the cold win­ter months in Perth were es­pe­cially dif­fi­cult for home­less peo­ple and the do­na­tion of warm sleep­ing bags and blan­kets could make a big dif­fer­ence to their com­fort lev­els.

“This year we hope to be swamped with do­na­tions,” he said.

“I en­cour­age ev­ery­one to par­tic­i­pate so we can help the Salvos pro­vide much-needed warmth for those in Perth sleep­ing rough.”

New or freshly laun­dered sleep­ing bags and blan­kets can be dropped off at REIWA and Coak­ley & Martin in Su­bi­aco, Airey Real Es­tate in Clare­mont, Mo­men­tum Wealth and Joyce Prop­erty In­vest­ments in West Perth, and Dethridge-groves in Fremantle.

Other col­lec­tion points can be found at on the In the Com­mu­nity page. ■
