For those of you who are not aware, the Sacred Heart Mission in St Kilda assists hundreds of people who are homeless or living in poverty to find shelter, food, care and support. A specific part of the support they offer is their Meals Program that provides hundreds of meals every day to the homeless and disadvantaged.

For more than 5 years now, we have always arranged a Chocolate Drive at Easter (and Christmas) to provide the opportunity for one individually wrapped, egg sized, chocolate Easter egg to be placed on the meal trays during this period of time. This gesture is very impactful to those less fortunate than ourselves, and can make a huge difference to someone’s life.

This year, the opportunity to gain support for this initiative is now bigger than ever and we can make a real difference together. Therefore, we are seeking donations which will help change the lives of so many people.

As a result of the overwhelming support in the past and the number of people who wanted to make a financial contribution towards this initiative, we have now set up an online campaign to make it easier for you to participate and help raise funds.

Please visit our campaign page at
