UPDATE:

Thank you so much for your incredible support!

Together, we have reached our initial fundraising goal of $400,000. No words can describe the generosity shown in our community.

We are determined to always be there for vulnerable people who desperately need us.

Funds raised over our new target of $750,000 will help keep our kitchens cooking and our programs running over Christmas and beyond.

We need your support to continue to deliver love and assistance to people who are struggling on our streets and to people who are isolated in their homes.

____________________________

A big thank you to our amazing donor VivCourt and Corporate Match 2.0 for their incredible generosity. 

They matched, dollar for dollar, $50,000 on Tuesday 23rd December. Doubling the love, care and support for those who need it most.

____________________________

For all of us, Christmas this year will be different…

And for the 37,715 people experiencing homelessness in NSW, Christmas is going to be especially tough and lonely.

We need your support to provide freshly-cooked meals and support over the Christmas and holiday season.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, our community lunches planned for the week leading up to Christmas Day have been put on hold. However, we will provide free takeaway meals and crisis support each day, including Chrismas Day.

In every way, we are going to show people that they are loved and not forgotten.

Because no one should go hungry at Christmas.

But we need your help…

Please ‘Donate a Plate’ to feed a person experiencing homelessness and keep our kitchens cooking and our programs running over the entire Christmas and holiday season.

We are raising funds this Christmas to make sure people living in and around our streets are fed and supported during what can be a lonely and difficult time of year.

We are determined to always be there for those vulnerable people who desperately need us.

Wayside Chapel is one of only a handful of organisations, offering support for those experiencing homelessness and social isolation over the Christmas and New Year period.

People turn to Wayside Chapel because we are open when people need us most. 

Choose love over hate and stand with Wayside to provide love, care and support this Christmas.

We’re asking you to Donate a Plate to feed and support a person experiencing homelessness this Christmas season.

For just $25, you can provide a freshly cooked festive meal to a person living on our streets or experiencing social isolation this Christmas and holiday season.

  • $25 will provide one meal to feed a homeless person

  • $50 will feed a couple

  • $100 will feed a family of four

  • $250 will sponsor a group of 10 people

  • $500 will sponsor a group of 20 people in need

Funds raised will go towards the cost of keeping our programs and services open throughout the holiday season so that no-one goes hungry and no one is forgotten.

My Dad is still on my Christmas list even though he’s no longer with us, every year he gets a plate donated in his name to Wayside to feed a homeless person. I dare everyone to buy a loved one you’re missing at this time of year a present like my Dad gets! #nousandthem #loveoverhate #peopletobemetnotproblemstosolve #thewaysidechapel
