Donate new or good-quality used winter clothing and items to help elderly Indigenous people in Alice Springs
This organisation is helping elderly Indigenous people who require warm clothing, tents and blankets for winter
This community organisation supports a range of clients across the Northern Territory. Many of the people it supports in Alice Springs are Indigenous.
The organisation is seeking donations to support people experiencing financial hardship, neglect and abuse. Some of the people supported by this charity are effectively homeless, and live in makeshift shelters in the bush with minimal protection from the elements. Overnight temperatures in Central Australia regularly fall below freezing during Winter.
This organisation is seeking to get ahead of the demand for winter items that will arise as the weather gets colder. Your donation will help ensure vulnerable First Nations Peoples are safe and comfortable through the cold outback winter.
You can see the full list of what's needed here. Requested items include:
- Winter clothes for men and women (jumpers, jackets, coats, sweaters and jeans)
- Single blankets
100% of donated funds received by GIVIT for this project will be used to buy clothing and items to help Indigenous Alice Springs residents this winter. To donate, simply click here, then write 'Winter clothes for elderly First Nations Australians in Alice Springs' in the comments of your donation.
