Coats for the Homeless 2020 distribution

As the weather across Australia starts to warm up, our Coats for the Homeless project managers are planning the 2020 distribution. To ensure the coats arrive in time for winter, the manufacturing order must be placed in the coming months.
“Our 2019 project resulted in 6,000 Coats for the Homeless being distributed Australia wide by our members and partner organisations. Whilst this is a huge achievement, many homeless organisations contacted us in winter for Coats and our limited quantities had already been allocated” explains National Hospitaller John Murphy.
“I strongly urge any interested organisations to contact us now regarding purchasing additional coats so that we can do our best to increase our reach and distribution across the country to those in need” he went on to say.
The number of Coats the Order of Malta can distribute each year is largely determined by funds available for the project on ordering.
“Ideally we would like to increase our distribution numbers next year but that will rely on additional donations” said John. “Any financial support will be gratefully received.”
