FR BOB'S HOPEMOBILE NEEDS YOU!
$20,545 of $20,000 goal
In 2015, Fr Bob and his Foundation provided more than 24,000 hot meals to the homeless and disadvantaged.
An average month at the Foundation by the numbers looks a bit like this:
Takeaway Meals: 1,258
Meals Provided: 1,366
People Assisted: 1,573
Volunteer units: 266
We are a roving restaurant on wheels - we take tables and chairs with us so that people can be comfortable while they eat and can socialise.
We are joined at these meals by other groups like Avalon who come and give clothing, blankets and a mobile laundry.
There isn’t a day that our staff and volunteers aren’t working actively with the community to make their life easier, safer and more fulfilling. We work with our own people and with other like-minded organisations to implement new and sustainable solutions to people who need support.
The fact is, it is getting harder to raise the much needed funds to keep Fr Bob's vital work going.
It isn't just a charity; it is an community essential service.
We are asking to you join with us to ensure that this valuable community work can continue.
Thanks for your generous support. We have now ended donations through this campaign.
As you may know, we had a fire at our Montague Commons and OutreachHQ. The fire caused thousands of damage to our leased building.
We lost all our food and material aid stock due to smoke and water damage. Repairs are underway but we have launched a new gofundme campaign here: gofund.me/fireatfrbobs
Thanks again for your wonderful support!
Fr Bob, Mem, Zach and the whole team.
My/Our Foundation continues its work on the streets of Melbourne - thank you from all of us for your generous support.
With three vans on the streets and a new Outreach HQ, the Foundation is bigger and stronger than it has ever been before and we’re working to secure its future for the community.
I believe absolutely that the Fr Bob Maguire Foundation will continue to grow and be a loud and passionate advocate for the voiceless and forgotten – the unlovely and the unloved.
