Here’s an opportunity to help those people within our community who are struggling.
Need a Feed is about to hand out 200 ‘Personal Care Packages’ to families in need across the Illawarra and they still need donations of shampoo and conditioner, soap, toothpaste and the like to fill the bags, before this Thursday!
Organiser Shaz Harrison-Shaw says the packages help low income families, those struggling with a sick family member, and even those who have recently escaped domestic violence.
“We ask that when you travel throughout the year you collect the little toiletries on offer in hotel rooms. These mean a lot to people who can’t afford life’s basics. But in the meantime, if you can spare anything that might make someone’s life a bit nicer, we’d really appreciate it.
“We urgently need toiletries, but we also need non-perishable foods such as pasta and pasta sauce and tinned foods so we can help people who need emergency care this winter.”
Donations can be made at IMB branches in Dapto, Corrimal, Shellharbour, Unanderra and Wollongong or at Autochange Mechanical 1/1 Pioneer Drive, Bellambi.
