Mary Mac's Place Food Drive
Did you know that 45% of people experiencing homelessness are working an earning an income?
In NSW alone, over 32,000 people are experiencing homelessness. Over 1,000 people are experiencing homelessness on the Central Coast.
Homelessness does not necessarily mean ‘rooflessness’.
Mary Mac’s Place offers daily meals, food hampers, shower and laundry facilities to those in our community experiencing food insecurity or homelessness. They rely entirely on donations in order to serve over 500 two-course meals per week and continue to provide this vital service to those that need it the most.
Let’s make a difference together!
Throughout August you can donation non-perishable food items, toiletries and more, and together we can make a difference.
Drop your items off at the donation hub located opposite Coles.
You can also purchase a $2 or $5 plate and Deepwater Plaza will match every plate purchased!
