2018 Homeless Expo

May 29, 2018

On the 9th of May, CQUni Mackay's City Campus in Sydney Street offered to host the 2018 Homeless Expo within their undercover basketball court. 

 

A total of 28 swags, 300 bags, and a large amount of clothing, blankets and bedding were donated by various people and organisations such as Endeavour Foundation, Givit, CQU staff members, Mackay Funerals, City Funeral Services, and Mackay Regional council. The Salvation Army also donated 100 generous food hampers to those who attended the event. In addition, 50 haircuts, 43 flu vaccinations (3 more than last year), 8 medical checks, and 15 dental checks (with many booking follow up dental appointments) were issued on the day.

 

CASA provided 160 ham and salad rolls along side “Real Kebab” who provided over 90 chicken and vegetable soups. 

 

CASA would like to acknowledge our offical attendees;

Cynthia Simpson (CQU), Lorraine Wirth [our official hostess of the day] (CASA), Glenn Cole (DoH), Louise Mitchell (CASA), Steve Spenser (SA) and Dallas Sievers (DHS).

 

A special thank you to Philip Kemp who provided the “Welcome to Country” opening speech infant of approximately 200 guests. 

 

CASA would also like to say a huge thank you to the CQUni Mackay, Orange Sky Australia, Mackay Women’s Centre and to all the other local agencies that attended the expo and provided support to those homeless members of our community.  

 

Check out some of the photos from the expo below.
