Project Stable Staples (PSS) started out as a quick response fund during the Circuit Breaker by eight individuals looking out for their neighbours and communities, especially when the closure of retail and entertainment outlets meant that sources of part-time income were lost.
Since then, many new organisations have sprouted up, looking out for the same communities. The PSS team has pivoted to providing a quick response fund for families in transition instead, and aims to help bring them some stability as they find a safe harbour to continue their lives.
Today, PSS focuses mainly on families who are awaiting support from various support initiatives, including government and private initiatives. We also provide a map of resources that they can apply for, and guide them towards other long-term support structures.
We ship emergency groceries at short notice to families, particularly, milk powder and diapers. It is our belief that the babies are innocent, and we try to ensure that they don’t go hungry. On occasion, we get generous sponsors who help us fund grocery runs for some families.
We are on the lookout for volunteers and sponsors!
