Free - Medical, Housing Support, Haircuts, Personal Grooming Items, Non-Perishable Food for The Homeless @ Homeless Connect
Not your conventional deal but a deal for those in need and those that want to give.
I just saw a video on Facebook about homelessness which inspired me to again search for ways to help the homeless. I came across an annual event called Homeless Connect which provides services to people in need once a year.
Homeless Connect brings together businesses and community groups at a one-day event. It provides free services to people experiencing homelessness, or those at risk of homelessness.
Homeless Connect events provide the following:
- volunteer medical and allied health care professionals including doctors, dentists, optometrists, podiatrists and massage therapists
- housing support
- haircuts by volunteer barbers and hairdressers
immunisation delivered by Council's immunisation team
- personal grooming items such as towels, face washers, toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo and deodorant
clothing and shoes for adults, children and babies
- non-perishable food items.
It appears that Adelaide, Hobart and Melbourne also have Homeless Connect events though I wasn't able to find the 2019 event dates.
Hopefully these events can help someone in need. Please consider giving your time, skills or items if you are in a position to do so.
