Donate a Plate 2023

This fundraiser is part of the "Donate a Plate" campaign.

Together with other fundraisers and generous donors, we’ve raised $1,511,856 so far!

All I want for Christmas... is your support!

For the 35,011 people experiencing homelessness in NSW, Christmas is a lonely and difficult time.

So, this festive season, I'll be raising funds to provide freshly cooked meals and ongoing support for those doing it tough.

But I need your help…

Please Donate a Plate so no one goes hungry this Christmas.

Just $27 will provide a Christmas lunch with all the trimmings to a person living on our streets.

Every dollar raised will keep Wayside Chapel's kitchens open and programs running throughout this holiday season. Because no one should go hungry or be alone at Christmas.

Together, we can show people in crisis that they are loved, and not forgotten!
