Thank You For Helping The Homeless

Hamilton Library staff have just concluded an appeal for donations to help local people suffering homelessness.  Our blanket display has been a great talking point among staff and students. We have been overwhelmed with the generosity of our TAFE community and have been able to compile care packages for homeless men and women.

Care packages compiled from the donations.

Our staff and students have openly talked about homelessness, personal things that they do to help people in the community, and also how they are educating their own children about community issues.

Thank you to everyone who has donated and been involved in our appeal.
