Zenviron Supports Soul Cafe Sleepout 2022
This year Zenviron put together a team to participate in the “Sleep Out for Soul”, raising funds for a local Newcastle charity Soul Café. The sleep out took place Friday evening, 27th May.
Braving the cold, our team arrived with their sleeping bags and pillows to prepare for a night under the stars in a local outdoor carpark. Zenviron alone raised $5376 toward this charity, with the total funds raised on the evening being in excess of $200,000. Which is a fantastic result.
Soul Café was the vision of Life Church and was formally established in 2003. Their vision was to build a charity dedicated to helping the most vulnerable in our community. As well as serving up meals, they wanted to go beyond this to cater to the whole person.
The guests who come through Soul’s doors today are from all walks of life. They see large levels of brokenness, homelessness and mental challenges, but never judge. Soul Cafe are simply there to offer sustenance, a friendly face, and many other types of essential support.
From accommodation to drug and substance abuse programs, haircuts, laundry and legal and medical services, whatever their guests need, they help them access it. Most importantly Soul Cafe deliver hope – hope that people care and that lives can heal.
We look forward to contributing again next year, with a larger team on board!
