What we do
Based on the Mornington Peninsula, Blessing Bags is a Melbourne-based initiative that assembles and distributes hygiene packs to those experiencing homelessness and/or disadvantage. The hygiene packs contain essential personal care items as well as a handwritten note of hope and positivity so that the recipient knows that they are not alone.
Blessing Bags aims to provide access to essential personal care items that many people take for granted until they are presented with the challenges of homelessness and/or disadvantage. Completely volunteer-run, Blessing Bags thrives on the support and donations from the wider community. To date, Blessing Bags has provided 14,000 Blessing Bags to those in need.
Blessing Bags advocates for meaningful, evidence based policy change to end homelessness in Victoria.
