REIWA and its agents are getting behind the Salvation Army’s annual Sleeping Bag Appeal and asking West Australians to also support to the cause.
The Sleeping Bag Appeal is part of the Salvos’ Winter Appeal to help the homeless in WA by collecting warm sleeping bags and blankets to distribute to those in need.
REIWA president Hayden Groves said the cold winter months in Perth were especially difficult for homeless people and the donation of warm sleeping bags and blankets could make a big difference to their comfort levels.
“This year we hope to be swamped with donations,” he said.
“I encourage everyone to participate so we can help the Salvos provide much-needed warmth for those in Perth sleeping rough.”
New or freshly laundered sleeping bags and blankets can be dropped off at REIWA and Coakley & Martin in Subiaco, Airey Real Estate in Claremont, Momentum Wealth and Joyce Property Investments in West Perth, and Dethridgegroves in Fremantle.
Other collection points can be found at www.reiwa.com on the In the Community page. n
