Its just far too cold and the referrals just wont stop ! sadly the need is so high this winter and the donations received are lower than previous years and we have run out of Warm socks and scarves and beanies for teens and adults and need them desperately !
the winter weather is bitterly cold so we cant just leave these items out of the care packs , they are essential to help keep the individuals warm.
warm beanies , scarves and thick socks for both males and females are needed if you can donate we are happy to purchase in bulk but need funds to do so , or if you can donate items to either the Wagga or Albury branch's location details can be found here or if you can donate Polar fleece fabric we have some lovely crafty ladys who are happy to whip up some scarves for us free of charge. if you can help in any way and would like to chat to the team feel free to call us on 0403355075
