12 Weeks of Winter

CHAMPION (Community Hub and Meeting Place in Our Neighbourhood) is a community service established by the Temple Society Australia (TSA). It offers emergency food relief and a host of practical assistance and advisory services to help people get back on their feet and operates from a community centre located in Bayswater.

During winter, our service sees a large increase in the number of people asking for help. Many coming to us are in crisis situations. They are struggling to pay their rent and other bills, some are living in their cars or couch surfing, and many are unemployed or unable to work due to health problems.

This is where we are hoping you can help the people of your community! We are holding a charity drive, 12 Weeks of Winter, to collect donations of food and goods for those who need it most.
