Each year The Salvation Army’s Oasis Youth Support Network descends on Woolworths Carols in The Domain with a small army of volunteers and 10,000 candle bags stocked with over $100 worth of donated goodies.
Carols in The Domain has been supported by Woolworths since 1993 and is an iconic Oasis fundraiser and.
Bags are sold for $20 each and all funds raised are directed to Oasis accommodation services. There are over 44,000 young people sleeping rough, couch-surfing or in unstable and unsafe living arrangements in Australia. Oasis provides crisis accommodation and medium to long term accommodation services to young people from marginalised and disadvantaged backgrounds.
It costs just $40 for 4-meals and shelter for one night for one person in crisis accommodation, but most importantly it is also a safe place for young people to express themselves and build healthy relationships with adults; an experience that may not be all that familiar.
