FREO NOT DONATING TO HOMELESS BOXES
The five colourful Donate Without A Doubt collection boxes for the homeless the City of Fremantle installed around the CBD are less than successful.
The CoF reports that $ 8747.00 was donated to St Patrick’s in 2016 and half of that is the dollar for dollar match by the City.
It means that less than $ 12.00 a day was collected from the public in the five boxes, or $ 2.40 per box.
There is also little evidence it has helped to reduce beggars in the CBD.
