TOILETRY STARTER PACKS HAVE BEEN DELIVERED
We have today completed the packing of the toiletry starter packs for the 500 homeless Sydney kids who each year enter the services of Taldumande Youth Services.
Rotary Beecroft are so very proud of this achievement which could not have been done without the great support of YOU, our local community, who in the end, DONATED OVER 9,500 TOILETRY ITEMS!!!!!
Our wonderful volunteers who offered up their homes for our drop off addresses, and those precious volunteers that gave up hours/days/weeks to help sort and pack these 9,500 items into 500 toiletry packs and finally delivery them.
Another special thank you to JP and the staff at Custom Gear who were very helpful in getting the toiletry bags made up and printed for us in what was a tight time line
Cheers everyone and thank you. Let’s start putting these goodies away for our collection next year.
To everyone who has contributed, donated and volunteered, thank you. You have shown that we are a great community, and what a difference we can make to people life’s when we all pull together.....500 lives this time!
The response to this campaign has been outstanding!!!! We are still receiving last minute drops offs and counting as we go and hope to have final figures early next week. Following this we will get people together to start packing the 500 toiletry kits which will take a big team a few days.
Surprisingly and very thankful, we're pretty sure we'll manage to fill all of the bathrooms of the 26 Sydney homes Taldumande Youth Services have for these children as well.
Please “Like” our Facebook page as we’ll update everyone with full details of the outcome next week with pictures of your donations as well.. 🧡🧡
