SHOUT A MATE A $6 PLATE
Mary Mac’s Place is open to anyone who is homeless, lonely or needing a helping hand.
Homelessness and social isolation is a community responsibility. Mary Mac’s located in Woy Woy costs over $150,000 per year to run. We provide more than 24,000 meals a year at a cost of $6 per meal. We are aiming to raise funds to cover the costs of these meals and keep this essential service running.
Mary Mac’s relies 100% on community support – your donation will help us to continue to provide this service to our community. Please Shout a Mate a Plate today! Every cent of the $6 will go directly to providing meals and all donations are tax deductible.

OUR COMPANIONS HAVE MANY DIFFERENT FACES
These faces include homeless people, couch surfers, train sleepers, rough sleepers, and people sleeping in cars or residing with family or friends in overcrowded situations.
We’re seeing more women and children who are escaping domestic violence and sleeping in their cars because it’s not safe at home.
We have families where the main income earner has fallen ill needing surgery or treatment and cannot afford rent and food.
We see pensioners that have lost a partner and now cannot afford rent, food or bills on a single pension and people who simply cannot afford the rising cost of rent.
People also come to simply have a chat and for friendship because they are otherwise lonely or isolated.
