A huge thank you to our Melbourne Supporters and Sammie (and her parents!) for these amazing boxes of goodies which were delivered to our Albury / wodonga branch today.
Hi everyone ,
I wanted to pop by tonight and let everyone know whats been happening. a couple of weeks ago now i posted a message stating angels wagga was closed due to ill health , also you may have noticed the page has been rather quiet.
This year has been difficult for myself and my family ,we have had to deal with some overwhelming stressors, plus a couple of weeks ago i became very unwell and ive been having some cardiac issues and have been unable to do anything other than pretty much sleep.
My wonderful wagga volunteers have been great pulling together to get as much done angels wise as possible, ive also had some great friends making sure the kids and i are doing ok.
over the next month or so i have to have MANY appointments with various specialists including cardiologists, neurologists and so forth plus i need to work on building my strength up and working on ways to overcome and deal with these new hurdles.
Whilst i recover angels will continue to operate , however we ask for everyone's understanding that response times will be slower whilst other volunteers juggle learning to take over what i usually do on a daily basis.
To help our volunteers find their feet Angels is unable to take donations of second hand items for the time being unless it is something specifically requested for a certain referral.
this will allow our team to focus just on filling referrals and getting stuff to where its needed instead of sorting.
we will also be limited to only fundraising online as we are very short of hands across all branchs at present.
So my focus for the next few months will be online , we will be doing allot of activity's relating to raising awareness on key topics, doing research, conducting surveys and recruiting more wonderful volunteers to our established branch areas and the very essential fundraising and applying for grants.
I do hope everybody is understanding , and i hope ive helped everyone understand whats happening in the angels world for the moment.
page administrators for the next few months are myself ( Melina) our vice president Jade plus to of our wonderful founding members Maddie and Annette
