We were delighted to be one of the chosen not-for-profits by Splendour in the Grass to receive high quality camping gear for our homeless clients.
For the last couple of years, Splendour’s Environment and Sustainability Manager, Max Tischler, has been working on effective ways to reduce the amount of waste and unwanted items left at the Splendour festival and looking at how to turn it into a positive.
While the challenge of tackling homelessness goes well beyond tent accommodation and camping gear, this is a small positive step to provide those who are experiencing homelessness to have basic shelter and access to warm and comfortable essentials.
Momentum’s marketing team put their hands to volunteer and help salvage the abandoned tents, chairs, eskys, and inflatable mattresses, collecting over 30 high-quality items. Once the team have cleaned them thoroughly, they can be useful to someone who needs it.
“We managed to re-gift over 30 quality items to donate to our homeless clients and community members”.
To highlight Homelessness Week in Australia and launch Momentum Collective’s first-Australian Kindness Wall, some of those salvaged items will feature on the Kindness Wall and will be available for anyone in the area that is struggling to stay warm and safe this winter.
Visit our head office at 35 Wharf Street in Tweed Heads if you are wanting to donate some unused jackets, blankets, and tents to your local community.
Momentum would like to thank Splendour for organising such an impactful initiative.
