Over 500 pairs of police boots have been donated to the homeless across New South Wales.
NSW Police have donated their second-hand police boots throughout the month of August, which were collected by Mission Australia and distributed to those in need.
“The leather boots are very comfortable; they’re of great quality and certainly have plenty of life left in them," Police spokesman for Vulnerable Communities, Superintendent Allan Sicard said in a statement on Wednesday.
“Unfortunately, a simple life event such as an unpaid bill, a medical emergency or a poor decision can put people at risk of homelessness. If people ask for help, early specialist homeless services can intervene and prevent individuals and families from living on the street,” Supt Sicard said.
