How you can help this Christmas
Provide Perth's most vulnerable with a place to call home this Christmas Day. Funds raised will help those experiencing homelessness enjoy a shared lunch, hot showers, haircuts, companionship, and vital access to Mission Australia's community support services.
Australia's longest running and largest community funded Christmas event designed specifically for those most in need.
Since the first event in 1975, over 70,000 meals have been served to Perth's most vulnerable and in need on Christmas Day.
1,200 care packs
Every adult attendee will receive a care pack containing essential personal resources.
This year over 1,800 attendees are expected to attend in 2023. For many, without the event, they would be alone on Chrstmas day.
