While helping at the showers, we came across a man who was telling us about the lovely hot shower he had had earlier and that it was his first since last week. We conversed about how he usually showers himself at one of the beaches that has warm water. (Maybe Burwood beach?) He didn’t know about the showers, washers, and dryer - breakfast service that Oasis provides 4 days a week. I was able to inform him of this and much more via the meals and services pamphlets!
This man also told me that he had thrown out his socks when he had his shower. (Also his underwear as they were crusty he said, hahaha) So I took him over to the Vinnies clothes corner, where we were able to scrummage through some clothes and find some second hand socks in great condition that he was more than happy to have that were being thrown out (remember we only wanted to give away brand new socks and undies) It was later in the day and there were no new socks/undies left.
He was such a character!!
