Christmas collection to help the homeless


Victorian parliamentary catering staff have organised a collection basket at Parliament House to help bring some Christmas cheer to people in need.

Blankets, clothing and other essentials are being collected outside of the catering service on the building’s ground floor.

The items will be distributed by Anonymous X, a foundation established last December to help people who are homeless and less fortunate.

"We collect everyone's generous donations from all around Melbourne, sort them into the appropriate categories before boxing them all up, labelling them, then distributing it personally to any individual or groups we believe need it most," Anonymous X says on its website.
