COMMUNITY: Obus x Brotherhood of St Laurence Winter coat drive
The Brotherhood of St Laurence is a community organisation that works to alleviate and prevent poverty in Australia - an organisation Obus has worked with for many years. This Winter, we are proud to partner again with Brotherhood in raising funds that support children and families to thrive.
. . . . . . .
Our 2019 Winter Coat Drive offers you two ways to support the Brotherhood. Donate a pre-loved coat at our Northcote, City or Fitzroy stores; or add a $2O ‘Brotherhood Gift’ to purchase online or instore.
In return for your donation, we'll give you 20% OFF any coat purchase!*
How Brotherhood of St Laurence help families and children
Astonishingly, 1 in 6 children in Australia live in poverty. Poverty is not just having too little money to live on. It can also mean they or their families being shut out from other aspects of social and economic life that people commonly take for granted: a job, a home, education, or being connected to community.
With your support, the Brotherhood of St Laurence can provide more children and families with quality educational services and learning environments that enable the next generation to achieve their potential. Their programs and services support disadvantaged people of all ages to build better lives for themselves.
What can your donation achieve?
$20 can provide four children with a nutritional breakfast every day for one week, helping them to be school ready
$20 can provide educational children’s books for our early childhood programs, helping parents to become their child’s first teacher
Coats that are donated instore will be on-sold to Brotherhood's Community Stores (op shops).
