For the past month officers from the local command have been donating their used boots as part of the statewide drive.

Nowra Duty Officer, Inspector Rob Vergano and Shoalhaven Crime Prevention Officer Senior Constable Anthony Jory presented12 pairs of boots to Missions Australia’s Illawarra South Coast regional leader Brett Fahey.

“Police at Shoalhaven have handed boots in for Mission Australia’s boot drive throughout August and we collected 12 pairs,” Inspector Vergano said.

The boots will be distributed throughout the community.

“It is great to know we are helping people out there and looking after their feet,” he said.

Mr Fahey said thedonation was greatly welcomed.

“It’s a wonderful donation from the Local Area Command in Nowra,”he said.

“It’s an initiative Mission Australia and NSW Police have put together. It started at the beginning of Homelessness Week.

“We are lucky to have such a huge donation of boots in this area. They will be put to good use for a lot of people who are sleeping rough and are homeless across the region.

“In particular, we have a high number of young people who are homeless.”

He said the boots would be distributed through the organisation’s Ulladulla Youth Centre.

“A lot of people take a good pair of shoes for granted,” Mr Fahey said.

“These will be definitely well received by people in our region.

“People are happy to have a good, reliable pair of shoes.

“They often don’t have reliable footwear or only have one pair of shoes, so this donation will make a big difference.”

For the record, the Shoalhaven command’s effort topped the Wollongong police’s collection numbers.

NSW Police Commands across the state have donated 300 pairs of boots.
