On Tuesday 1st August, members of the Power Tynan team were homeless for a night, joining community members on the streets to help raise awareness of homelessness in Toowoomba as well as much needed funding for the Basement Soup Kitchen.
The Basement Soup Kitchen is vital for those doing it tough in our community, as it is often the only meal that person will eat for the day and the only place where they are able to connect with others and feel accepted.
Sadly between 400-600 people are homeless in Toowoomba alone, with 1 in 200 people homeless Australia-wide.
Thanks to generous donations from our clients, friends, family members and business contacts, our team raised $3,930 (smashing our goal of $2,400), contributing to a total of $76,234 raised from the event.
Thank you once again for supporting this fantastic cause!
