Claim Central supports this year’s Vinnies CEO Sleepout
Claim Central are stepping up to the St Vincent de Paul CEO Sleepout in Sydney for the third year in a row, with Travis Dale, our Head of Operations Australia and New Zealand being among those sleeping outside.
On Thursday 21st June, Claim Central hosted a staff lunch to raise funds towards Travis’ contribution to the Vinnies Sleepout.
With homelessness currently affecting more than 116,000 Australians, business leaders spend the night sleeping on a sheet of cardboard to raise money for the homeless services St Vincent de Paul provides, while giving a taste of what people who experience it endure.
Travis Dale, said “I do this once a year to raise awareness for those who are less fortunate than us, the numbers are rising and the awareness needs to be out there”.
Last year, the Vinnies CEO Sleepout raised $5.6 million providing 1.9 million individual support programmes, 689,000 beds for a night, and 1.5 million meals.
