The Appeal will be running from 7am - 6pm and you can donate your time for 1 hour or half a day, all support is appreciated.
St Vincent de Paul Society’s Fundraising and Event Coordinator Stephanie Rullo, said all funds raised from the day enabled Vinnies to continue its important work in providing emergency relief and support to families and individuals experiencing hardship.
“The Society responds to welfare needs in the community by providing emergency relief by way of food, clothing, household items and financial assistance.
“Many people are doing it tough at the moment and as a result we have more and more people turning to us for help,” Ms Rullo said.
“We encourage corporate groups, schools or individuals to get involved and collect on behalf of Vinnies.
“Many people really enjoy the experience and the interaction with the community and often come back surprised at how much fun they had,” Ms Rullo said.
Nova radio’s Casanovas will also be coming to the CBD on the day adding to the atmosphere and excitement.
Volunteers are supplied with everything they need so all you do is pick a corner or walk through the Perth CBD to collect donations.
