Donations to Junction 142
Junction 142 operates with Volunteer Labour, and the income from weekly markets and Op Shop (Sweet Charity). There are no regular grants from Government, nor any other Body, although from time to time, grants have been received for specific purposes. The activities rely heavily on the generosity of our community.
The various areas of support are managed by people willing to give their time and expertise to those less fortunate – often working gratis 50 or 60 hours a month in addition to their normal workaday life.
Although we receive “rescued food” from local businesses, and donations of clothing, etc from time to time, nevertheless the cost of providing our services (meals, hampers, shower, laundry, clothing, personal hygiene needs, sleeping bags, tents, etc) is very high.
