On Thursday, 18 June 2015 I will join some of Australia’s top business and community leaders for the St Vincent de Paul Society of Victoria’s CEO sleepout: sleeping rough on one of the coldest nights of the year.
Funds raised through the Vinnies CEO Sleepout will go towards helping the more than 100,000 Australian men, women and children who are experiencing homelessness to find the warmth, safety and dignity that they desperately deserve.
Vinnies supports people experiencing homelessness through a range of person centred and holistic support services including crisis accommodation, domestic violence support, access to budget counselling, lifeskills courses and legal advice, as well as assisting in planning for change and their return to independent living. Your kind donation enables this good work to continue and makes a real difference to people’s lives.
It only takes a moment to help write a new chapter in the story of homelessness and help break the cycle. If you would like to donate, please visit https://www.ceosleepout.org.au/ceos/vic-ceos/david-southwick-member-for-caulfield-in-the-victor/
