A PERTH Salvation Army women’s refuge will feel more “homely” thanks to the generosity of locals who took part in the Feels Like Home campaign run by Karrinyup Shopping Centre.
The campaign, which ran throughout August, had customers donate stylish homewares and money to bring added comfort, security and warmth to women and children escaping family violence.
It also included a makeover by local stylist Kyree Harvey who transformed the refuge with the donated goods.
Karrinyup Shopping Centre marketing manager Claire Ridley said she was delighted by the generosity of the centre’s customers.
“There’s been a remarkable response to this campaign with people so keen to help women and children affected by family violence,” she said.
“Among the items donated are stylish homewares, quality children’s toys, artworks, toiletries, storage solutions, kitchenware, plants, soft furnishings and much more, as well as cash donations of more than $6000.
“We’re so happy to have been involved in this worthwhile project and cannot wait to see the final result.”
