Coats for the cold

Grampians Community Health employees are joining forces to help communities in need of a bit of winter warmth this year.
Stawell Health and Community Centre has installed a rack for donated winter coats for elderly, homeless or community members struggling to keep warm in cold and wet conditions.
Grampians Community Health chief executive Greg Little said the service plans to install similar racks at its Horsham and Ararat offices following positive responses from staff and community.
“It is great to see people getting involved by donating a coat,” he said.
“It is such a simple way to make sure people are warm and cared for in the winter season.
“Winter can be a tough time for many people in our region, and we need to consider that older people, homeless people and others who might be going through a rough time suffer the most.
“We would welcome anyone who has a coat in the wardrobe they are not using to bring it in and hang it on the rack for someone to benefit from.”
The Stawell coat rack is at the entrance of Stawell Health and Community Centre in Patrick Street. People can access any of the Grampians Community Health services including homelessness or aged care services by calling 5358 7400.
