About the Campaign
Sadly on any given night in Toowoomba 400 – 600 people are homeless, with 1 in 200 people homeless Australia wide.
The Basement Soup Kitchen is vital for those doing it tough in our community, as it is a place where people feel connected and accepted, as well as access essential services and resources, including swags and meals – for some, it may be the only meal they have for the day.
Being homeless for a night is a humbling experience and it inspires me to help the many people living on our streets.
Homelessness is a growing problem in Toowoomba and services across the region are often overwhelmed and under-resourced to provide the necessary services to people who are homeless in the community leaving them with no alternative but to turn people in need away.
This is the reason why I am raising funds in support of the Basement Soup Kitchen so that they do not need to turn anyone away now or in the future.
