Give a Kid a Blanket - 10th Winter Campaign

27 Apr 10:00AM - 29 Jun 4:00PM

 Give a Kid a Blanket - 10th Winter Campaign

For their tenth year in service, Give a Kid a Blanket is kicking off their winter campaign early this year to try and get warmth where it is needed before the worst of winter sets in.

Give a Kid a Blanket is a community activated art action of kindness led by social practice artists Bernie Harfleet and Donna Turtle Sarten (both former Corban Estate Arts Centre residents, with Bernie now also a member of our Board).

The Give a Kid a Blanket Winter Campaign is an annual call for donations of warm winter items that are distributed to those in need via carefully selected frontline community agencies. Give a Kid a Blanket is completely volunteer operated and fuelled by their Community of Kindness. Corban Estate Arts Centre assists their cause in a small way by being a drop-off location for community donations during their winter appeal.

-

Give a Kid a Blanket only accepts new and/or excellent quality pre-loved blankets, duvets, bedding and sleeping bags, new pillows, new hot-water bottles, pyjamas, beanies, socks, jumpers, winter coats, rain coats, winter bedding, duvet inners and covers, toiletries, long life and canned food. Please note: No other clothing is accepted.

Bring your bagged or boxed items to our reception in the Main Homestead between Saturday 27 April - Saturday 29 June. We’re open for drop-offs Monday-Saturday, 10am-4pm excluding public holidays.
