300 Blankets is thrilled to be selected as a recipient of a StreetSmart grant. Approaching the coldest seasons of the year, the generous funding will provide us with the capacity to grow, providing warmth to more people experiencing homelessness throughout Victoria. Being selected as a recipient further acknowledges the importance of providing warmth to the most vulnerable in our community. We are excited about the opportunities opened up with this grant and look forward to spreading warmth to people who need it the most.
StreetSmart takes action against homelessness. They raise funds and awareness for small, ‘hard to reach’ grassroots services and projects. These projects provide critical services and emergency aid as well as promoting social inclusion, empowerment and sustainable change for people who are homeless or at risk. 100% of donations raised through our events are distributed in the form of grants. To date StreetSmart has raised $3,031,680 and supported 843 grassroots projects.
