The Lions Club of Jandakot Lakes is always seeking new ways of supporting people in the local community and recently provided eight Swags to St. Patricks Church in Fremantle.
The Swags will provide clean and dry sleeping acommodation for homeless members of the St.Patricks Centre for the foreseeable future. Varian, Fame and Kathryn visited the centre and were hugely impressed with what they saw. The staff were extreemely grateful for our interest, visit and particularly our offer of assistance.
Since last winter our Lions Club have donated a further 12 backpack swags. The recipients were so delighted, some of the swags were handed out immediantely by St. Pats staff. The poor guys had been freezing at nights on doorsteps and in parks.
If anyone is interesed in providing Swags or in finding out what they are, information can be found by clicking on the first photo or going to http://swags.org.au/why-backpack-beds/homeless-backpack-bed/
