Care And Share

One of our latest initiatives is our Care and Share program.

Twice per year we set up a stall outside Woolworths at the Brickworks Market, and seek donations of non-perishable goods from the store’s customers. With consent of management we run the stall for three days mid year and at the end of the year.

People are approached prior to entry and asked if they could purchase an extra item or two of food that could be donated to a local charity to assist people who need some support. Most people are not only happy to help in donating food items, but many think beyond food and provide other goods such as pet food, cleaning  materials  or personal hygiene items. At the end of each day the goods are collected by the nominated charity for distribution to their client base. The generosity of people is sometimes overwhelming as they contribute bags of food items and a range of consumables that would be  useful in any household.

A display table provides a guide to customers regarding the types of goods that would be appreciated. Our display stand identifies the beneficiaries of the customers good will.
