SME, Abbe and The Good Box are helping spread hope together

2 min read

SME, Abbe, partners with The Good Box to provide essentials and help spread hope to the homeless community. 

The rising homelessness in Australia has become a concern for many individuals and companies. With the numbers reaching 122,494 people as of the end of 2021, the interest to help and make a difference in their lives have been a cause that multiple people are trying to support. 

Abbe, an Australian Packaging and Packaging automation solutions company, has been one of these working to help the cause.  

They have partnered with The Good Box since 2022 to ensure that the members of the homeless community receive the necessary support and supplies that they need in order to live with dignity. 

For the past year, they have been actively supporting the different campaigns and activities run by The Good Box in order to make sure that the charity partners receive the needed support. They are also integral in supplying the Good Boxes through their printing, cardboard and manufacturing resources.  

They have been very generous with their time in helping not only produce the boxes that are to be sent out but also in helping pack the products that are donated by the different partners and sponsors. 

This coming April and May, the Mother’s Day campaign of The Good Box will be another huge partnership activity with Abbe. Item collection drives, packing activities and more are planned to continue with the help of both organisations.  

“I am looking forward to working with the wonderful staff from Abbe again, they have been invaluable in helping us assist Australians in need,” said Gali Blacher, The Good Box Co-Founder.  

Plans for this Mother’s Day include the packing and distribution of the YouBeauty boxes that are targeted towards women experiencing homelessness due to domestic abuse.  

Family, sexual and domestic violence became the leading cause of homelessness across Australia for women and children – and particularly so for those who are young, pregnant or have an Indigenous background.  

In 2021, 41% of people using homelessness services also sought help for domestic and family violence, a 5.9 per cent increase compared to 2020.  

New data released that women accounted for 81.7% of the 6,067 increase of people experiencing homelessness in 2021. 

Australians looking to support this cause can visit to donate to women in need.
