VENUESWEST is thanking its staff and customers for supporting the annual St Vincent de Paul Society’s Street Appeal.

Temporary Vinnies bins were overflowing clothing items brought in by staff and customers at Arena Joondalup throughout last month.

The annual Street Appeal aims to raise vital funds for Vinnies’ emergency relief program by addressing the needs of people at risk of homelessness through the provision of food, clothing, furniture and bedding, help with utility bills and rent, friendship, advocacy and referrals.

VenuesWest chief executive David Etherton said he was “extremely proud of the generosity”.

“To be able to provide items that make such a significant difference to the lives of those less fortunate is fantastic,” he said.

Vinnies marketing and engagement manager Lisa Torre said they were “incredibly grateful for the contributions and support”.
