How good does a great pair of new shoes feel?
You can give the gift of dignity by donating a pair of new shoes to someone doing it tough
Have you ever been forced to wear shoes that are too big, too small, or that have holes in them? Have you ever not had the means to buy a new pair of shoes?
For many vulnerable people in the community, this is their everyday. These people might be homeless, seeking Asylum, Indigenous persons experiencing hardship, or people experiencing or escaping from domestic violence situations.
Shoes for Dignity is an initiative aiming to get as many comfortable, well-fitting, appropriate pairs of shoes onto the feet of as many disadvantaged people as possible.
We are seeking donations of new pairs of shoes as well as financial donations.
Your generosity can provide someone doing it tough with the dignity of wearing a great pair of shoes that are right for them.

Tools provided for East Gippsland bushfire recovery
More than 300 homes and/or sheds were lost during the devastating summer bushfires in East Gippsland, Victoria. Now, for many residents, there’s a mammoth task of cleaning up and rebuilding ahead. But with sheds, tools and equipment destroyed in the fires, tool kits are needed to help them get started.
