Survival Hampers for the Homeless

Mike John John and hampersKu-ring-gai Rotary members making up ‘Survival Hampers’ for the homeless. There are many rough sleepers in the area from the Harbour Bridge to the Hawksbury.

Often when a person becomes homeless, they find themselves on the streets with little more than the clothes they are wearing.

The hampers contain enough non-perishable food for approximately a week and are intended to keep the person going while some form of accommodation is being sought.

The hampers contain breakfast cereal, long life milk, canned meals, water bottles, protein bars, biscuits, cuppa soup, baked beans and spaghetti. They also contain essential items such as soap, toothbrush and toothpaste, warm socks, face towels, rain poncho, insect repellent, feminine hygiene products, hand wipes, toilet paper and shampoo, and a face towel.

The kits are made up with the assistance of Hornsby Connect Inc. and are distributed through Catholic Care Waitara.
