300 Blankets is a not for profit charity who provides support to individuals and families at risk or are experiencing homelessness. In Victoria, more than 25,000 people are currently homeless and after food and water, blankets are their most sought after item. We are a 100% volunteer organisation and your donation will go towards the following three key areas: blankets, homeless outreach program and Soul Kitchen.
- Blankets: We are the biggest donors of blankets for the local soup vans and we also provide blankets for a wide range of charities and not for profits providing support for people experiencing homelessness.
- Homeless Outreach Program: We operate a twice weekly volunteer outreach program in the heart of Melbourne to provide friendship, important information and material aid to people sleeping rough.
- Soul Kitchen: We operate a weekly soup kitchen in the western suburbs of Melbourne to decentralise homeless services in Melbourne and make a direct impact on individuals and families through building relationships and addressing food security.
Established in 2012, we have been making strides towards supporting existing homeless services, assisting people who are homeless for the first time to reach appropriate services, and creating positive relationships with people who are entrenched in homelessness so they can find the strength to improve their livelihood.
