Marino Law raises more than $5,000 to help highlight Australia’s hidden homelessness

On Thursday 21 June, Marino Law’s executive team braved cold temperatures, camping out at Cbus Super Stadium to raise money and awareness for people in Australia experiencing homelessness at the 2018 Vinnies CEO Sleepout®.

Joining more than 200 Gold Coast business leaders, Marino Law managed to raise more than $5,000 towards the appeal, which assists the St Vincent de Paul Society (Vinnies) to provide immediate relief to people in crisis and bring to light the harsh reality faced by those who have no place to call home.

More than 105,000 Australians experience homelessness every night — 27 per cent are children and 23 per cent are faced with the situation due to domestic and family violence.

St Vincent de Paul Society Queensland CEO, Peter Maher, said the Vinnies CEO Sleepout® is a great opportunity for leaders to come together to make a real difference in the lives of those who are less fortunate.

Vinnies provides crisis accommodation to individuals experiencing homelessness, as well as advocacy support, budgeting services, living skills programs, emergency relief, transitional housing and access to programs that help rebuild lives.
