SKLPCWA has partnered with City of Stirling ‘s initiative of food relief during the COVID-19 crisis. City’s food relief is operating from Balga Community Centre. They are currently operating through foods donated through SecondBite organisation and a partnership with St Vincent de Paul.
We are assisting St Vinnies WA with help feeding the needy.
Vinnies is one of the largest and longest serving emergency relief charities in Western Australia, offering a hand up to people in need for over 150 years.
They are committed to helping people build bridges out of poverty and they do this by providing practical assistance and advocating for change. They believe that empowering people, not blaming them, is the answer to combating poverty.
In 2019/2020, Vinnies provided emergency relief services to over 55,000 people across Western Australia. They are very much reliant on community food donations to help with their hamper program.
