Imagine being homeless at Christmas, for most of us the festive period is a time to relax and enjoy being with our families.But for hundreds of thousands of people around the country Christmas merely underlines an uncertain future. With no permanent home Christmas is a time they widens the gap between those with family and friends support and those all alone!
HDStreetwise Volunteers put together Christmas Hampers for people on the streets and in halfway houses in the Perth area. Hampers consist of long life food products, Christmas decorations and a gift.
We are always in need of donations for the Hampers and volunteers for putting them together.
Homeless Birthdays - Shelley believes that everyone should be shown how important they are and what better day to do this than on your Birthday. The very day that marks your entrance and existence into this world. The Homeless also deserve to feel Special on this day, through HDStreetwise’s Birthday Program we have contacts with business people around this city, and across Australia, we have been able to arrange for birthday presents to be delivered to the less fortunate on their birthdays. Just imagine feeling alone and forgotten and on your special day you receive a gift from someone you have never met and probable will never meet. it’s someone who want to remind you that you are important. The boost to morale and self-esteem, that these gifts from people who the recipients do not know, is immeasurable. Such gracious generosity has caused some people to return to their families, or get back to work and many other minor miracles have stemmed from the love shown through this program.
Backpacks and or water Bottles – Do you have a backpacks or drink bottles stored away in your cupboard that are too good to throw out, but you will never use them. Why not donate them to HDStreetwise. Something as simple as a backpack can change the lives of people who carry their only possessions in plastic supermarket bags. Many of the homeless have no ready access to drinking water or are drinking from plastic bottles that may be toxic.
