Collect and donate everyday necessities like soap, shavers, toothbrushes, deodorant and sanitary supplies and we’ll package them up for homeless youth.
Join us on 18 August from 3-5pm to wrap up donated toiletry items at Foys Arcade in Melbourne’s CBD. At-risk young people are often in living situations where basic hygiene is considered a luxury and these items can make a real difference. Donated goods will be going to Melbourne City Mission homeless youth.
“MCM is very grateful to the Property Industry Foundation for providing toiletries like deodorant, soap, shaving and sanitary products for young people who are experiencing homelessness,” says Melbourne City Mission Senior Manager Molly O’Shaughnessy. “For young people who are transient or don’t have a home, it’s incredibly important to have access to basic essentials, including toiletries to maintain health and hygiene.”
Foys will be accepting items for delivery from 12 August, so make a connection and support a young person in need. “Anyone considering donating that these sorts of contributions can make a huge day-to-day difference for young people in our homelessness programs,” says Molly.
When: From 12 August, you can drop off or deliver toiletry supplies to Foys Arcade at Level 6, 246 Bourke Street, Melbourne. Our wrapping event is on at Foys at 18 August 3-5pm.
Please notify the Foundation if you are collecting items by emailing Jessica, email@example.com
What: Shampoo/conditioner, roll on deodorant, toothbrushes, toothpaste, sanitary products, hair ties, washers, band aids, sunscreen, socks and jocks.
