Connecting with Victoria's homeless

In a project designed to connect the community of Victoria with its homeless population, homelesspartners.com has a new batch of stories from Victoria.

With a new website thanks to donations and volunteer work, the not-for-profit organization gives residents the chance to have a personal connection to their giving. Homeless people tell their stories and are able to request gifts. Users of the site are able to deliver the gifts directly to the shelter with a caring note.

The three Cool Aid shelters in Victoria have collected 107 stories and 295 gift requests. To date 105 gifts have been pledged.
