Warming The Hearts (And Bodies) Of Those In Need

"We can't help everyone, but everyone can help someone"

In a heart-warming gesture, a local business has jumped on board to offer a helping hand to those in need by providing a clothes rack of warm jumpers and essential items for winter – completely free of charge. Given the rental and financial crisis, many people are left grappling for money with others forced to sleep on the street.

In light of this, IDEAL Placements Mackay have provided a Community Rack on display at the front of their business to “help the less fortunate people and families struggling with no warm places to live or able to afford new season clothing.”

The kind company posted to their Facebook page in an attempt to spread the word so that those who are struggling can access the items free of charge and with no communication necessary.

The post read: “Located out the front of our building (70 Sydney Street) is a clothes rack with coats, dressing gowns, oodies, cardigans, etc. - where anyone is welcome to collect or donate items throughout the day!

“Please, if you'd like to donate something, feel free to come and replace anything that's been taken or bring it into the office for us to add to the rack.

“If you are struggling or need some warmer items - feel free to pop by and take something, no fees or no communication necessary - you can just take what you need.”

IDEAL Placements Mackay have kindly offered a selection of free jumpers and warm clothing for those who are unable to buy new items due to financial strain. Image supplied
