Donations and volunteer help are needed to assist thousands of local families and individuals doing it tough as temperatures plummet with the onset of winter.
Coat-A-Thon, an annual drive for donations of coats and blankets, aims to keep people in need warm. AccordWest has commenced distributing coats and blankets to people in need in Collie and Busselton during the first week of the drive – but more donations are required across the South West. All kinds of warm jackets and blankets are needed, but there is a particular shortage of children’s jackets.
There is also a severe shortage of volunteers to help around the region on distribution days. Anyone who is interested in volunteering, please call AccordWest for more information.
