Heat The Homeless
Anaconda and XTM Performance team up to collect and and distribute second- hand snow jackets to give to those in need.
Together with Australian snow brand XTM, we are calling out for locals to bring in their old and unwanted snow jackets and we will distribute them across Australia to the homeless to keep them warm this winter. From June 3rd 2019 there will be collection boxes at all of our Anaconda stores nationally where customers can leave their donations. This great initiative is a chance for us to give to those less fortunate. Your old unwanted snow gear will make a world of difference to those who go without. We are also calling for thermals, gloves, pants, hats or other winter apparel that you can donate.
With an estimated 116,000 people across Australia classified as homeless, the Heat the Homeless appeal aims to give community members an opportunity to donate quality, pre-loved snow jackets to warm those in need and keep the jackets out of landfill. Once received, the jackets are then distributed to the homeless through charities such as GIVIT who partner with XTM Performance. The socially conscious label works with up to 2,000 charities across Australia as part of the Heat the Homeless appeal.
This year their aim is to reach 20,000; an achievable target thanks to the considerable donations that have already been made to date.
