Many people visit our WestCare Centre each week to use our shower facilities.
Small shampoos and conditioners, body wash, deodorants, razors and shaving cream, toothbrushes and toothpaste, socks, new underwear (men and women), towels (new and used in good condition), combs and brushes, tampons and pads.
Many of our community sleep rough.
A blanket or sleeping bag can help make their sleeping situation just a bit more bearable.
Everyone who stays overnight with us is given a sleeping bag to keep.
Your donation will help us keep up the demand.
Your donation of a beanie or scarf, knitted with love, will help keep a member of our community warm in winter.
Your donation of thongs and water bottles will help protect a member of our community's feet and keep them hydrated in summer.
With the number of people who visit us for a shower each week, we need a high number of towels. Your donation of new or used but in good condition towels would be gratefully appreciated.
