Homelessness Week Activities

Winter Sleep Out

Students are invited to take part in the CRC Melton online winter sleep out on Friday 7 August.

Participants will be asked to sleep on the floor at home with no heater, one blanket, one pillow and only a thin mat.

A Teams video call will be organised on the night, so students can take part in activities and competitions such as building a blanket fort. There will be discussions about homelessness and students will hear from local organisations supporting those in need in our community.

The Sleep Out will raise funds for two of these organisations through a Go Fund Me page and participants will be encouraged to ask friends and family to sponsor them.

Students who would like to take part in the Sleep Out should email Ms Clare Hume, chume@crcmelton.com.au, before Thursday 30 July.

To donate to the CRC Winter Sleep Out visit the College's Go Fund Me page.

I Give A Sock Day

Silly socks will be worn for a good cause by students and staff on Wednesday 5 August.

Our DLM students can take a photo of their silly socks on the day and post it on their Homeroom Teams page. If they also post the photo on Instagram with the hashtag #igiveasock and tag @underworksaustralia, Underworks will give an essential clothing item to someone in need.

Students on-site at the College can wear their silly socks to school and bring a gold coin donation to Homeroom. Funds raised will be donated to Foodbank Victoria, which is working with Underworks to give out essential clothing items and food to those experiencing homelessness this winter.
