You can help people in your community and raise funds for Vinnies in the Lower Eyre Peninsula, by taking part in the 2017 Community Sleepout.

 

The funds you raise will go directly to support people in need in your community, supporting Fred’s Van in Port Lincoln.  Fred’s Van has been in operation in Port Lincoln since November 2011 at the Catholic Church hall, approximately 7,000 meals have been served in that time.   

 

Fred’s Van is run solely by volunteers using funds that are raised at the Sleepout.  Each year, over 130 volunteers are directly involved in the purchasing, preparing and serving food for Fred’s Van on Sunday evenings.  The volunteers come from all parts of our community. The people from our community who come to Fred’s Van each Sunday are looking for food, a hot drink, some warmth on a chilly night and a nice conversation and sense of community.  Our volunteers often pull up a chair and sit with the people we assist to share a bowl of soup and lend an ear.  What we offer is an hour of respite and a chance to have a great meal amongst a caring community.

All participants in the sleepout are asked to raise a minimum of $200 for the St Vincent de Paul Society by gaining sponsorship and donations.  All funds raised in the sleepout are used for the good works of the Society in the local community.
