Heat the Homeless Initiative

Heat the Homeless chairty campaign

With an estimated 116,000 people across Australia classified as homeless*, our Heat the Homeless appeal aims to give you the opportunity to donate quality, pre-loved snow jackets to warm those in need as well as keeping old jackets out of landfill. Once received we partner with around 2,000 charities such as GIVIT as well as Humans in Melbourne to distribute the jackets to the homeless.

The appeal first began in 2016, in that first year, we were inundated with support and collected over 2,500 jackets. Since then, the number of pre-loved snow jackets donated has now risen to 14,000. This year our aim is to reach 20,000; an achievable target thanks to the considerable donations that have already been made to date.

 

HOW YOU CAN HELP

Donations: If you would like to donate a jacket to the Heat The Homeless Initiative we have a full list of collaborating stores at the bottom of this page. Just drop your jackets into the Heat the Homeless boxes supplied but your participating retailer.

Retailer: If you are a retailer who wishes to get involved in this campaign please contact us through our email address info@xtm.com.au and we will supply you with our Heat The Homeless collection box, information posters and add your store to the participation list.

Charities: If you are a charity based organisation and would like to help us distribute these jackets to the people who really need them we would be delighted to hear from you. Again please feel free to get in contact with us on info@xtm.com.au

 

We would like to say a big THANK YOU to all the retailers and charity organisations who have helped us get the campaign to this point. 
With a huge shout out to GIVIT, Indigo Junction - W.A. , Humans in Melbourne and Melbourne I Love You for their ongoing support.
