Homeless Connect May 23 2019
The Homeless Connect Event will be held at Rockhampton Showgrounds on May 23.
The event is co-hosted by Anglicare and Rockhampton Regional Council. Communities Chair, Cr Rose Swadling said “Homeless Connect is an annual event which provides people who are experiencing or are at risk of homelessness with access to various services, as well as an opportunity stock up on essential items. “We had to change our donation location this year and as a result we have had far fewer drop offs, so we have extended the donation deadline and added two additional drop off locations. “We are asking our fantastic community and amazing local businesses to really step up and get involved and show the outstanding generosity that we have seen before. “There are lots of great ideas around the region including making up a small pack for a particular person e.g. a teenage girl, and creating a collection point at your work place. “Do you have some nice clothes that you no longer wear? Could you afford to buy a few extra cans of food or bottles of shampoo during your next shop? Then please help. While each donation may feel small, collectively we can make a huge difference.”
