Bridge Housing staff have undertaken a major initiative to make Christmas a little brighter for clients of The Settlement and Share the Dignity

The food drive of non-perishable food and household items donated by staff will create hampers for local families in need and be distributed through The Settlement.

Staff also participated in the #itsinthebag campaign inspired by Share the Dignity, an Australia wide charity who asked us to fill a handbag with Christmas gifts of treats and necessities for women and girls experiencing homelessness. Read more about Share the Dignity

Bridge Housing matched the donations collected tfor both causes o the value of $1,000, helping to make the initiative a massive success.
