Ipswich City Council supports Coats for the Homeless with $20,000 donation
On Thursday 3rd April, Members of the Order in Queensland hosted a Fundraising Breakfast for the Coats for the Homeless project. The annual Fundraiser, which is now in it’s third year, was attended by 140 people, including guest speaker Mayor Paul Pisasale.
Mayor Paul Pisasale’s speech expressed great enthusiasm for the project and he pledged his ongoing support to its future promotion. However the highlight was undoubtedly his unexpected annoucement that Ipswich City Council would make a $20,000 donation to the Coats for the Homeless Campaign.
The Queensland Branch would like to thank everyone who supported this event.
$100 will buy three specially designed, warm shower-proof coats for people who find themselves without a home this winter.
