West Welcome Wagon (WWW) was started by Yarraville's Mia McGregor via a dedicated Facebook page in September 2013 when she realised there were families moving into the area without any furniture or household goods. There are no paid staff just volunteers working together for the good of the common man. A voluntary committee and core group of voluntary collectors and voluntary delivery drivers work tirelessly behind the scenes. If you would like to join this band of selfless workers who help refugees and asylum seekers settle in (most come with nothing but the clothes on their back), put in a request to join their closed group on their Facebook page. You can also contact the committee President via email at westwelcomewagon@gmail.com
