THE Salvation Army is holding a sleeping bag appeal and Rockingham businesses are getting behind the cause.
Summit Realty staff member Adele Wilson said it was important to be actively involved in the community.
“We want to give something back and are committed to supporting the wellbeing, growth and development of our area,” she said.
“We are seeking donations of sleeping bags to replenish the Salvos’ stocks in a bid to keep more people warm on the streets this winter.”
“Drop off new or freshly laundered sleeping bags or blankets to our Waikiki office, on Read Street, and we will deliver them to the Salvos.
“Homelessness in WA impacts about 10,000 people and has increased more than 11 per cent since 2006.”
Summit Realty, Community REInvest and the Salvation Army are supporting people in need through ongoing co-operative initiatives.
