Over the last 2 and a half years we have given over 3500 blankets to people experiencing homelessness through out Victoria.
The 300 Blankets blanket are brand new, super warm queen sized polar fleeced blanket and are distributed individually wrapped in a resealable waterproof bag.
What makes these blankets even more special is that some of the blankets distributed in Melbourne also contains heartwarming handwritten messages written by the community, for the community. After all, the blankets are a gift from the community to remind those experiencing homelessness that we see them, want to do something for them, and we care.
Recently we have also developed a partnership with social enterprize STREAT to include free coffee/hot tea cards in some of the blankets distributed in the Melbourne CBD. This is a way to bring even more warmth to people who need it the most.
But there’s never to enough. Our current beneficiaries who help distribute our blankets includes St Vincent de Paul Society Victoria, Hanover Welfare Services, The Royal District Nursing Service – Homeless Person’s Program, Manna Inc and we frequently receive contacts from many other organisations requesting blankets.
You can help now simply by donating directly to 300 Blankets and ensure we will always have blankets to give to those who need it most.
Thank you for supporting our mission in keeping our community warm.
