Keep families warm this winter and enable Uniting to provide swags and blankets for people sleeping rough in the Goulburn Murray region.

$29 provides 1 x warm blanket
$58 provides 2 x warm blankets
$87 provides 3 x warm blankets
$115 provides 1 x swag
$460 provides a set of 4 swags

In past appeals, we have been able to accept used blankets but now because of COVID-19 concerns, we can only accept online donations or new blankets and doonas.

So the challenge is even greater this year during the pandemic to keep those who are most vulnerable in our community warm and sheltered during a cold, wet winter.

Please donate online or drop off new blankets at Uniting, corner Beechworth Road and Nilmar Avenue, Wodonga. Any donation will be gratefully received and will make a big difference.

ABC Goulburn Murray and Uniting’s Winter Blanket Appeal supports the 1,000 people who access Uniting’s Emergency Relief Services in Wodonga every month seeking nutritious food, financial assistance and other support.

 To donate online go to our gofundraise page

Thank you to ABC Goulburn Murray and WAW Credit Union for their support to help make the Winter Blanket Appeal a success, and help families and those sleeping rough stay warm this winter.

We are looking forward to rolling out Uniting’s Winter Blanket Appeal in other areas around Victoria and Tasmania soon.
