In 2020, PROSH
will be selling papers to raise money for:
Dogs’ Refuge Home
Refuge Home was opened in October 1935. It is one of the oldest animal welfare
organisations in Australia. More than 80 years on, the Home is still saving
more than 1000 dogs in need every year. It has become an integral part of the
Western Australian community. Our fundamental belief is that dogs are
entitled to the same love and respect that they unconditionally give
us. Without the generous support of the community and donations from
dog-loving people, businesses and organisations, we would not be able to
provide the vital care needed to look after all the dogs that pass through our
mission is to create an equitable, healthier and sustainable Australia. We do
this by collecting pre-loved sports equipment and donating it to young people
in some of the most remote and under-serviced communities in WA, from Perth all
the way to the Kimberley. In 2018 our volunteers collected, cleaned and
distributed over 7000 items of sports equipment – that’s 247 large wheelie bins
full! The conservative replacement cost for that equipment is $121,000.
The sports equipment went to communities, clubs and other not for profit
organisations allowing over 9000 people to have better access to sport and keep
Short Back and Sidewalks
& Sidewalks (SBSW) provides haircuts and positive connections, free of
charge and free of judgement. We connect with people in need and collaborate
with the community, providing opportunities for conversation, connection and
safe spaces while our clients receive a free professional haircut by some of
Australia’s top barbers and hairdressers. SBSW hit the streets of Perth in
early 2015. The first cuts took place in a car park behind a shopping arcade off
William Street. It was a simple set up for a simple idea that has gone on to
grow, help and inspire across Australia. Since starting, we’ve partnered with
some of Western Australia, New South Wales, Victoria and the Northern
Territory’s key service providers, including St. Bart’s House, RUAH, Passages
WA, Uniting Care West, The Salvation Army, Ngulla Mia, YMCA HQ, Rough Edges,
Orange Sky Laundry, Kensington Street Women's Accommodation, HoMie Street
Store, Mutitjulu Community at Uluru and Garma Festival of Traditional Culture
in North East Arnhem Land and various others.
