Donate a plate for Wayside's Christmas!

Not everyone gets to spend Christmas surrounded by family and friends, with a ham on the table and gifts for everyone. For many in Sydney and throughout Eastside, the holiday season can be lonely. Wayside Chapel has been committed to making the Christmas period a time to come together as a community and support those who are less fortunate and more vulnerable.

Wayside Chapel makes Christmas more special for people in need.

They are back again with the annual donate a plate project. For just $25, you can provide a meal with all the trimmings for a homeless person living in on the streets.

  • $25 will provide one meal to feed a homeless person

  • $50 will feed a couple

  • $100 will feed a family of four

  • $250 will sponsor a table to feed 10 people

If you want to make your donation on behalf of a friend, family member or colleague, use the 'perks' option to receive a blank paper plate 'gift card', which we'll post to you. Share the plate in lieu of a gift this Christmas. In addition to this your name will be written on a plate at the Christmas Day Street Party to recognise your support to feed the homeless.
