SHC Homeless Care Packs for a Christmas in July

On 3 July 2018 the annual winter event, Sydney Homeless Connect, will bring together thousands of people who are experiencing homeless or at risk of homelessness with services and support that they need, whether it be a hot meal, a haircut, a medical check or access to an agency that can help them take a step forward.

Sydneysiders, we need you to shine during the cold, rainy winter! Please donate an SHC Homeless Care Package filled with the bare essentials to help those who need it most.  Last year, we saw Sydneysiders everywhere get on-board to support this cause from individuals, groups of friends, workplaces, churches, meet-up groups, schools, etc. It was spectacular display of  “do some good for the sake of doing good”! Think you’re up for it again?!  Read more

“So then, why do you do it?” It is a question I get asked a lot. Sydney Homeless Connect is a completely not-for-profit activity. Nobody gets paid. We are not trying to build a business. We are not even trying to grow the organisation. It is all about a diverse group of individuals coming together to try to do what they can to help people who are currently experiencing some hardship – just because it seems like a good thing to do. And some people just can’t understand it.

With more than 3000+ homeless guests from all corners of NSW expected to turnout for the day of Connect, it would be a huge help to offer each of them a small care pack make with love. A Homeless Care Pack could include some of the following: Read more

What happens to financial donations?

However, there are some things that require us to seek financial assistance in order to conduct the annual Sydney Homeless Connect event. Read more
