Our 2018 Winter Appeal is now on!For many who will experience homelessness in the coming months, this period can be very difficult, particularly for those sleeping rough.
Samaritan House is the only facility which caters exclusively for homeless men in Geelong. We continue to rely on the generosity of individuals, groups and philanthropic organisations to keep doing what we do and are only able to keep our doors open with the generous support of Geelong people.
So our annual Winter Appeal, our single most significant and important fundraising activity, is critical to our on-going service. Last year, we were able to raise just over $70,000 during this Appeal. Our target for this year is $100,000, which I know is ambitious but achievable.
All donations are most welcome – every little bit counts - and will make a genuine difference to the lives of homeless men. All donations to Samaritan House Geelong Ltd of $2 or more are tax deductible.There are many ways to donate financially.ONLINE
