Our wonderful relationship with Myer was escalated to a new level in May 2013 when we held our first corporate fundraising event – Bake for Blankets – at the Myer Support office in Melbourne.
The amazing afternoon tea was co-ordinated by the team at the Myer Support Office with support from 300 Blankets. On the day, staff from across the company brought in specially baked cakes, macaroons and sweets to make a memorable Friday afternoon tea. The hand crafted goods were lovingly created by master chefs which looked as good as they tasted.
The amount of support for our cause by Myer and their staff was incredible. Whilst everyone was enjoying the delicious baked goods, Br. Doug – Soup Van President of Victoria and I were given an opportunity to speak about our cause and the realities of homelessness in Australia. It was great to be able to hold such a positive event and to get the support from everyone who attended. Thank you Myer.
Bake for Blankets at Myer raised enough to provide 188 blankets for people experiencing homelessness.
