September volunteer wrap-up
Once again, this month was jam-packed with volunteer activities run jointly with our local partner Brothers in Need. We started the month with our regular monthly visit to My Home Disability Services in Birrong where we celebrated the birthday of Sr Maliha – a regular at the centre. To mark the occasion, our good friends at Brothers in Need hosted a fun-filled barbeque in which residents shared some great conversations, good laughs and delicious food. Sr Maliha enjoyed her special day with family and friends. Look at her beautiful smile!
We also continued our Saturday night homeless food program. This month our volunteers gathered at Martin Place to distribute hot meals, hygiene kits and non-perishable food items – delivering some much-needed food relief to our homeless on a cold Saturday night. Check out some pics from the night below.
We also started a new initiative with Brothers in Need at the Culinary School in Punchbowl. Our volunteers Akifah, Mona and Ayesha helped to supervise our friends from Tender Loving Care (TLC) while they cooked up a storm. The Culinary School runs cooking classes specifically designed for people with special needs – encouraging greater independence while promoting social and community participation.
