As we start to prepare for the colder months by priming our heaters and getting our warm clothes out, it’s easy to forget that winter can be an extremely tough time for many vulnerable men, women, children and families during winter, who are living without winter essentials. This is where you can step in and show your support, and donate to our Winter Blanket Appeal.
Anglicare Victoria and LePine Funeral Homes have teamed up this winter to ensure people sleeping rough can be given extra, practical support.
By donating your spare blankets to a LePine Funeral centre, you will ensure a chilly night will turn into a cosy one for many people experiencing homelessness.
Every blanket received will be donated to Anglicare Victoria’s Emergency Relief programs, which operate all year round at over 16 locations statewide.
The campaign helps put homelessness on the agenda of local communities and highlights the value of people coming together to support a good cause.
With the fantastic help of the community, last year, over 2,700 blankets were collected nationally, ensuring thousands of disadvantaged Australians were kept warm.
This year we’re hoping even more blankets will be donated.
To donate a spare, clean blanket and support those less fortunate this winter, visit Le Pine Funeral Homes or phone 03 8587 5700.
