Help locals in need with Shoebox Revolution

You can now donate essential items to locals in need at our Shoebox Revolution donation point at Westfield Tuggerah.

The Shoebox Revolution initiative is a local community organisation founded by one of Westfield Tuggerah's 2019 Local Heroes, Rebecca Law.
Rebecca and Co-founder Sheridan Lenton are Central Coast mums that run this organisation voluntarily and are passionate about raising awareness on the housing issues on the Central Coast, and gathering donations for those who currently find themselves without a home.
They provide care packages (literally a shoebox) to people without homes or those who are poverty stricken which contain non-perishable foods, warm clothing and basic toiletries.

Westfield Tuggerah is now a donation collection point where our customers and community can donate these essential items, which can help those impacted by homelessness in a big way.

Donations can be placed in the yellow bin located next to the Concierge Desk on level 2, near JB Hi-Fi. Take a look at the list below for items needed for each care package.

Each shoebox sent out contains:

  • Socks
  • Beanie, Gloves or Scarf
  • Shampoo
  • Conditioner
  • Moisturiser
  • Soap / Gel
  • Razor
  • Toothbrush and toothpaste
  • Tissues
  • Antiperspirant
  • Breakfast (small cereals and UHT milk or breakfast biscuits)
  • 2 x tinned food items (soup, spaghetti, baked beans, tuna and individually wrapped crackers)
  • 2 minute noodles
  • Muesli bar
  • Lollies or chocolate
  • Biscuits or chips
  • Fruit cup or tinned fruit
  • Tea
  • Water bottle or juice popper
  • Disposable cutlery

These small items can make a BIG difference to the lives of those who are struggling and the Shoebox Revolution community look forward to your support.
