Holy Heffa and Patrician Brothers' College Fairfield are rallying together to raise funds for charity through the Holy Heffa x PBCF Fundraiser.
Pats old boys Joseph and Van - two of the guys behind the HOLY HEFFA concept - are teaming up with Fairfield Pats to bring the burger truck to their old school for a special fundraiser.
This is a closed event with tickets only available to senior students and teachers from the school. Tickets can be purchased directly from the Gilroy House Captain. The final day for purchasing tickets is Monday 20 June 2016.
Proceeds from the event will be go towards Vinnies (St Vincent de Paul Society). The Society’s volunteers help people in their local communities every year, providing support, friendship and resources to people in need.
The St Vincent de Paul Society first began helping Australians in 1854, and we’ve been active in the community ever since. The Society’s 40,000 members and volunteers help over 540,000 people in their local communities every year, providing support, friendship and resources to people in need.
Homelessness is a growing problem and the care of homeless is a primary concern of the Society. Moreover, in today’s financial climate more people than ever are turning to Vinnies for help. Men, women, families, youth and people who often fall through the cracks such as single dads and elderly women are sadly emerging as the new face of homelessness. The message is clear: today, more than ever, homelessness is an issue that can affect anyone in our community.
Specifically for the many homeless people we assist each night across the country; Vinnies operates numerous homeless services including soup van services, hostels for men, family services, refuges for women and their children escaping family violence and education and recreation facilities offering life skills courses, training and access to medical, legal and financial advice.
WITH OVER 105,000 AUSTRALIANS HOMELESS EVERY NIGHT, AND OVER 34,000 OF THESE BEING CHILDREN; THE TASK OF PROVIDING AID IS IMMENSE.
