Annual Blanket Drive for Town Camp residents of Alice Springs

One Disease’s Sharon Troncoso with Tangentyere Artist Keara Stuart

One Disease and staff based at the Centre for Remote Health campus of Flinders NT teamed up in June to raise money and donate blankets and warm clothes to the Tangentyere Artists’ Blanket Drive.

With temperatures dropping below zero over night for much of June, staff hosted morning teas and invited donations of goods and cash for this great local and very worthy cause.

Around 400 Artists make up Tangentyere Artists; an Alice Springs based Aboriginal owned Art Centre providing Arts training and Workshops as well as Marketing and Sales support for the artists. Their annual blanket drive distributes blankets to Town Camp residents around Alice Springs, many of whom are sleeping outside in freezing temperatures.
