YOUTH sleeping rough will benefit from street swags donated to Roseberry Community Services on Tuesday by the ladies at Queensland Country Women's Association.
As part of a year-long project, QCWA Gladstone plans to raise money and awareness for the homeless.
QCWA secretary Jan Street said homelessness had become a huge issue for Gladstone with young people coming up for work and struggling to find it.
RCS supervisor Sherradean Easton said they were very grateful for the much-needed donation.
"They'll get used straight away. I know two people who are going to need them very shortly," she said.
Both groups are preparing for the Homeless Connect Event on May 14.
