Get Schmick & Go - 13-17 April 2015





Help hundreds of homeless and disadvantaged people to Get Schmick & Go for National Youth Week. Get your workmates, friends and family to donate new undergarments, toiletries and go cards.

Your support will help young people to freshen up, look schmick and feel great. Your gift of a topped up go card will help them travel to appointments, housing and job opportunities and attend training courses.

Just buy some items from the Get Schmick & Go wishlist (see poster) collect from others if you can, and drop off everything to BYS at 42 McLachlan Street, Fortitude Valley between 9.30am & 6pm during the week of 13-17 April. (Email us at fundraising to finalise drop-off arrangements). 

See the poster and postcard for more details on the wishlist
