Wave FM wraps up Hoodies for the Homeless campaign

Staff Writer

The Illawarra region’s Wave FM has spearheaded a campaign to give hoodies to those sleeping rough.

The campaign was inspired by Breakfast co-host Damien Leith’s son, Jarvis. The teenager had recently undertaken a school assignment which revealed the depths of Australia’s homelessness crisis, even in the Illawarra region.

On the Jade, Straney & Damien show, Jarvis said 1,600 people in the region on any given night are without a home.

The campaign exceeded expectations, with 6,800 hoodies donated by the people of the Illawarra.
