No homeless man need sleep rough in Geelong
As you may know, I am on the Board of Samaritan House Geelong, which is a crisis accommodation service for homeless men in Geelong.
Attached is our Christmas letter which speaks about our work in 2019 and plans for next year.
As we receive no government funding for our work, we rely entirely on donations to continue our work. I fully understand that at Christmas you receive many requests for help but if you are in a position to support our work in some way, the letter shows you how.
With my best wishes for Christmas and 2020.
Keith Fagg OAM
