The Blanket & Beanie Appeal is a month long charity drive that is run with our participating schools throughout May.
The charity sees student leaders from these schools unite to collect blankets, beanies, scarves and other valuable donations to be given to the homeless just before winter.
These people are doing it tough on the streets. Let’s do our little bit and help keep them warm this Winter.

The Blanket & Beanie Appeal originated at Baulkham Hills Baptist Church many years ago.
The first appeal was run through Pennant Hills High School in 2016. The drive was a success, collecting over 200 donations.
In 2017 we were joined by William Clark College and together, the 2 schools collected over 400 donations.
By 2019, we had grown to 6 participating high schools.
Pennant Hills High School
Oak Hill College
Rouse Hill Angican College
Muirfield High School
Castle Hill High School
Cherrybrook Technology High School
The combined effort from the schools, school leaders and sponsors, along with the obviously generous communities, we collected over 1000 donations!
Our aim is to continually grow year after year, and reach more and more people in need.

We run a month long appeal in May through our participating high schools in Sydney.
We then collect the donations in June, store them, then hand them over to our organisations who distribute to the homeless.
