Karrinyup Shopping Centre’s Shed Your Winter Coat Appeal!

Today mark’s the first day of Karrinyup Schopping Centre’s Shed Your Winter Coat Appeal, which aims to raise over 1200 articles of warm clothing for The Salvation Army Red Shield Appeal.

Andrew Wilkinson, Marketing Manager of Karrinyup Shopping Centre said the Shed Your Winter Coat Appeal is an annual Winter call-out to the Perth community to donate as many coats, jackets, baby clothes, jumpers and blankets as possible for individuals and families in desperate need.

“By simply donating one warm item to the Shed Your Winter Coat Appeal – whether it’s an old coat, a baby jumpsuit or singlets, a pair of long pants or a small blanket – you will be making a big difference to those less fortunate, especially during the tougher months of Winter.

To donate, head to Karrinyup Shopping Centre and drop any coats, jackets, jumpers, blankets and warm clothing (must be laundered, clean and in good condition) for children and babies into the collection bin located in the Centre Court from 10am Monday to Saturday, and 12pm on Sundays from the 10th June to the 7th July.

Perth Style would like to urge everyone to get involved! We all have those ‘back of the closet’ jackets and knits we’ve been holding onto for yonkers for reasons we can’t seem to remember- here’s your chance to not only clear out the closet but to help those families whose winter’s may be a little colder than most. We will be heading down tomorrow to add to the collection and looking forward to seeing everyone’s contributions!

Let’s give back this winter folks!
