Sleeping bags for the homeless

Every year, the Salvation Army teams up with REInvest, REIWA’s community programme, for its Winter Appeal. This initiative collects swags, sleeping bags and other donations to help the homeless in Perth stay warm during winter.

After a similar successful campaign last year, Bourkes were again nominated by REIWA as a dedicated collection point for sleeping bags. A call out to the community and a donation round in the office yielded a nice mountain of sleeping bags, that is due to be picked up any moment now.

Our sincere thanks to everyone who supported the cause. We hope we are able to help a few people stay warm this winter.
