Sustainabulls are collecting donations for the homeless again this year to support SDG #1 (no poverty) and #2 (zero hunger)

As a school community we are supporting people on the Gold Coast experiencing homelessness and people ‘at risk’ of homelessness through Gold Coast Homeless Connect who hold an annual event to support those in need and provide them with items and services they are lacking. There is often a negative connotation attached to homelessness however one of the number one causes for homelessness, especially among youth is domestic and family violence where people would rather sleep on the street than in their ‘home’ which is unsafe.

We will be collecting items in the office or in Staffroom 2 until Friday August 2.

Some suggestions include non-perishable food, toiletries, clothes, shoes, socks, blankets, sleeping bags and anything else you can spare. If you are donating clothes, shoes or blankets, please ensure they are either new or good quality second-hand. Some items you may not of thought of include shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, soap, toothbrushes and paste, sunscreen, insect repellent, bath towels, nappies, sanitary items, wet wipes, Band-Aids, can openers, cutlery, razors and shaving gel.
