Coats for the Homeless project to expand in 2013


Following the success of the 2012 Coats for the Homeless distribution, we are now in the planning stages of the 2013 project. This year the Order is committed to increasing the volume of Coats we manufacture to 2,500 (an increase of 25% on 2012).

Despite the huge success and support received for this project, every year we are saddened that we could easily distribute 5,000 coats, however lack of funds prevents us from doing this.

Every day, almost 20,000 homeless Australians are sleeping rough on the streets of our cities and towns. Half of all the homeless seeking accommodation are turned away leaving them exposed not to the cold and wet.

$100 will buy three specially designed winter coats for people who find themselves without a home this winter.

If you would like to support this wonderful project you can donate online.
