The Mateship Foundation during the height of COVID and lockdowns

On this day in 2020, most of the world were experiencing stay at home orders, lockdowns and shutdowns. Most of the charity organizations that operate on Skid Row suspended service and the people on Skid Row had no one and nothing.

This didn’t stop Jay Jay and Shayne from hitting the streets to hand out food and essential hygiene items! Shayne went to hundreds of dollar stores to buy items because there were limits on how much of something you could buy at a time such as wet wipes. And Jay Jay continued baking his famous meat pies and sausage rolls.

Channel 7 News in Australia heard about what Jay Jay and Shayne were doing and sent their local journalist and cameraman to film a story about their efforts during one of the most difficult time in people’s lives. The video above shows exactly what the world was experiencing and what Jay Jay and Shayne were doing to help those who were forgotten.

This is what the Mateship Foundation is all about. Never forgetting a mate and helping a mate in need.
