Through the generosity of many we were able to fill some empty cupboards with much needed toiletry bags, pillows, doonas and sheet sets, in a couple of local refuges that will see an increase in numbers of people staying with them over the next couple of months. Sadly this time of year domestic violent events rise as does mental health issues.
We wouldn’t have been able to do this without a group effort.
Thank you Camden Golf lady members, Pegasus Pre School Narellan, Debz Health Revival, Marie Copp, Early Expressions Childcare Camden, Mt Annan Pharmacy Express’s discount, Kmart Narellan’s discount & Home Quarters Camden discount.
Brand New Day team members Leanne, Melissa and Therese recently packed 100 toiletry bags just in time for the big delivery.
Special thanks to Early Expressions Childcare Camden for the loan of their minibus and a driver and to Camden Golf Club lady members who donated proceeds to Brand New Day from a Charity Golf Day they recently held at Studley Park; along with the help from Kmart Narellan who gave us a great discount.
Brand New Day team members Shelly and Therese were able to deliver over 250 cotton covered pillows, 25 double cotton covered doonas and 25 double cotton covered sheet sets, along with 100 crisis toiletry bags; in 2 bus loads and one car load!
Thank you to everyone involved – we can all make a small difference to the lives of so many.
