How RufUs Helps the Homeless

Homelessness can & does happen to anyone

Anyone can fall victim to homelessness. For example, victims of domestic violence, the unemployed, mental disability as well as other reasons too numerous to mention.

RufUs works closely with many other charities/organizations that find housing accommodation for their clients. RufUs fits out the dwelling with essential furniture and items needed by their clients as they begin their new start to life.

RufUs Charity - Supporting the Homeless and victims of domestic violence

3 days 14 hours ago

This week it's our turn to say a veryBIG THANK YOU to 2 very generous and thoughtful ladies for two different reasons.
Firstly a very big thank you to Elaine from Home@Minlaton for her second and continuing donation of pillows that are delivered to our warehouse. Very good timing as well as we needed a few for a delivery.
Secondly and equally big thank you to Elizabeth from bags for blokes as she kindly gave Rufus another 10 blokes bags that we can pass on to the gentleman that we support.
When things like this happen it really helps Rufus to continue to provide the service that we do,as we aim to support the vulnerable in our community.

Loading, loading, loading.
Yes, that's what we spend a lot of time doing at Rufus, as getting the loads ready for delivery, loading them into the van and then unloading them at the delivery point.
This week we continued delivering furniture and household items to a number of families as well as a few single people too.
So as you may have guessed, we will be doing more loading, loading and loading next week as well.

Time for a bit of an update since our last posted. We have had a steady flow of deliveries including an unusual run on single beds. In 3 weeks we had three separate orders for 4 single beds for each.
As you may have guessed we now have no single beds left. We are working on replacing them so that we can continue to supply them to the homeless and the victims of domestic violence.
We've also had many requests for beddings and doonas and luckily so far we've been able to keep up with thanks once again to everyone who donated to our doona drive as with your support we can continue to support others. the demand.

Recently at Rufus we had 4 year 11 students from St Ignatius College come along and help us. They helped us to prepare kitchen packs by washing this is, glasses and mugs. They cleaned couches, they helped with hard rubbish disposal and many other tasks. It was good to have them there and we appreciated their help.
