It’s winter wine drinking weather and South Australian family business Paracombe Wines have found a way for vino lovers to enjoy their favourite drop while helping to support the plight of homeless people.
Adelaide Hills based Paracombe Wines Founder Kathy Drogemuller is again urging Australians to raise much needed funds for the people facing homelessness this winter by purchasing wine online, via the cellar door or mail order, with 10 per cent of all sales throughout July being donated to the Hutt Street Centre.
In its fifth year of supporting the Centre, Paracombe Wines is on track to hit the $10,000 mark, which will see people sleeping rough or facing hard times assisted with essential living items and programs designed to help rebuild lives.
Ms Drogemuller said by supporting the wine drive, customers are empowering their efforts to improve the lives of the homeless people long-term.
“We are a community-minded business and enjoy collaborating with our incredible customers to make a difference in the lives of those who are facing homelessness,” she said.
“This is a cause that doesn’t discriminate as anyone can fall on hard times and we wish to support the Hutt Street Centre in providing dignity, hope, care and programs for those facing life on the streets.”
Hutt Street Centre CEO Ian Cox said Paracombe Wines’ commitment to raising funds towards people experiencing homelessness in Adelaide is truly appreciated.
“Like us they do everything with passion, hard work and a strong vision,” he said.
“Knowing we have their annual support helps us to not only ensure we can provide immediate essentials such as a hearty meal, a warm shower and a place to store their few possessions, it enables us to deliver programs such as the Street Crew program where we can work with and find housing for our rough sleepers and our Pathways to Employment program that can help end homelessness permanently – and truly rebuild a life.”
