St Vincent’s Hospital Foundation hosted the Wrapped in Kindness Campaign in collaboration with Caulfield Grammar School.  

Caulfield Grammar students volunteered their time during the school holidays to pack items generously donated by local and national businesses, for people who are experiencing chronic disadvantage. The packs of warm clothing and toiletries have been distributed across St Vincent’s Hospital patients and to some of Melbourne’s most vulnerable members of our community.

The campaign was generously supported by local and national businesses who donated goods, including underwear, long pants, socks, mittens and toiletries. The amazing number of donated goods we received enabled us to distribute items to other key charities across Victoria as well as to indigenous families in need in Alice Springs.

2020 is the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife, but instead of celebrating, our nurses have been on the front line, putting their lives at risk, to keep us all safe.
