In the lead up to winter ACU Engagement and Campus Ministry collect winter clothing for those in need in our local communities. Each campus partners with a local community organisation to ensure our donations meet the specific needs of the community.
Our 2019 collection was a huge success with more than 1570 items donated across our campuses. Goods included warm coats, jumpers, long pants, beanies, gloves, socks, sleeping bags and blankets.
Our community partners for 2019 were:
- Catholic Parish of St Canice, Elizabeth Bay NSW
- Concord Baptist Church, North Strathfield, NSW
- Asylum Seekers Welcome Centre, Brunswick, VIC
- St Vincent de Paul Society Ballarat, VIC
- Blind Eye Ministries, South Brisbane, QLD
- St Vincent de Paul Society Canberra/Goulburn, ACT
Thank you to the staff and students at North Sydney, Strathfield, Canberra, Brisbane, Ballarat and Melbourne who donated goods to help those less fortunate feel warmer this winter.
