Metro Hotel on Pitt the sole collection point for Homeless Care packages

June 22, 2017 Responsible Tourism No Comments Email Email

Metro Hotel on Pitt in the heart of Sydney’s CBD, will be the sole collection point for care packages for Sydney Homeless Connect’s annual winter event on Tuesday 27 June at the Sydney Town Hall.

Care packages can be dropped off at the hotel between 7am and 9pm until June 24.

For the 8th year, the annual Sydney Homeless Connect event will bring together people who are homeless and at risk of homelessness with services and support that they need, whether it be a hot meal, a haircut or access to an agency that can help.

Sydneysiders are asked to donate a Homeless Care package filled with basic essentials to help those who could use help this winter. With more than 3000+ homeless people from all corners of NSW expected to turn out for the day of Connect, the public is being asked by contributing a small care package of essential items.

Metro Hotel on Pitt has a long established record of social responsibility. Management and staff at the property volunteer over 250 hours of their time each year to help various charities and fundraising initiatives.

Mr Simon Wanstall, Property Manager of Metro Hotel on Pitt, said he and his staff felt privileged to be able to support this worthy winter event.

“The homeless epidemic across Sydney has become too large to ignore.  We all need to take action and do what we can to help those in need this winter,” Simon said.

According to Homelessness Australia, more than 28,000 people are homeless in NSW and more than 105,000 people are homeless across the nation. On any given night in Australia, 1 in 200 people are homeless.
