Stand with Wayside Chapel and 'Donate a Plate' to feed a person living on our streets this Christmas.

For the 37,715 people experiencing homelessness in NSW, Christmas is a lonely and difficult time of the year.

We urgently need to raise $1,100,000 by 25 December to make sure the vulnerable members of our community are fed and supported this Christmas.

Please 'Donate a Plate' now to sponsor a meal with all the trimmings, and ensure that people doing it tough during the holiday season receive the love, care and support they deserve.

Because no one should go hungry or be alone at Christmas.

Together, we can show people living on and around our streets that they are loved, and not forgotten.

'All funds raised will go towards meals and support services delivered over the festive season... including Wayside's Christmas Street Party that we're hosting for our visitors on Christmas day!'

– Jon Owen, CEO & Pastor, Wayside Chapel

The Problem

Right now, there are 37,715 people experiencing homelessness in NSW alone.

For many people, the Christmas season is filled with joy, family and good cheer. But for people living on and around our streets... it is the loneliest time of the year.

In fact, 1 in 4 Australians can experience problematic levels of loneliness this Christmas.

This Christmas, Wayside Chapel is determined to spread the Christmas cheer and bring joy to the most vulnerable people in our community. But we need your help...

Together, we can show the most vulnerable people in our community that we stand with them.

The Solution

We’re asking YOU to 'Donate a Plate' to feed and support a person experiencing homelessness and social isolation this festive season.

Every dollar raised will go towards the cost of keeping our kitchens, programs and support services open throughout the holiday season, so everyone can receive the care, love and support they deserve.

Every Plate Counts

$27 will provide one meal for one person

$54 will feed a couple

$108 will feed a family of four

$270 will sponsor meals for 10 people

$540 will sponsor meals for 20 people

CHRISTMAS CHEER WALL
