The giving spirit is widespread throughout the VenuesWest community as customers and staff donate clothing items and gold coins in support of the annual St Vincent de Paul Society Street Appeal.
Temporary Vinnies bins are overflowing with clean and quality clothing items brought in by staff and customers at HBF Stadium and HBF Arena throughout the week.
VenuesWest is honoured to partner with Vinnies to support this annual Street Appeal which aims to raise vital funds for their Emergency Relief program; addressing the needs of people at risk of homelessness through the provision of food, clothing, furniture and bedding, help with utility bills and rent, friendship, advocacy and referrals.
VenuesWest CEO David Etherton said, “I am extremely proud of the generosity of our customers and staff. To be able to provide items that make such a significant difference to the lives of those less fortunate is fantastic”.
Lisa Torre, Marketing and Engagement Manager, St Vincent de Paul Society WA said “We are incredibly grateful for the contributions and support received from VenuesWest staff and customers for this year’s annual Vinnies Street Appeal”.
