Epping locals sleep out for charity

Epping locals sleep out for charity

On Saturday the 1st of September 2018, the Community Foundation of North Western Sydney organised the first ever Epping Sleep out held in Boronia Park.  The sleep out gave our community a unique opportunity to participate in an event which raises awareness of the homelessness and displaced people within Epping and Parramatta.

It was extremely promising to see the multitude of residents in the North Western Sydney Region join with me in braving the cold and sleeping out. It is fantastic to see the energy, care and compassion our community has for helping those in need. I am also thankful for the opportunity it gave me to discuss important issues concerning local residents.

Due to the tremendous support $6,000 was raised on the night and a funnel of $50,000 which will be rolled out in various community programs in the upcoming months to support the homeless and displaced people in the North Western Sydney Region.
