Subject: Update - Domestic & Family Violence donations from Spring Walk
Thank you to everyone who donated towards our Spring Walk fundraiser – we collected an amazing array of toiletries.
As we had so much, I shared the products across two organisations – the local women’s shelter at Woolloongabba (just near Officeworks) and to the Third Step refuge in Fortitude Valley where homeless women and men can spend the day in a safe environment to have a shower and a sleep. As of last week, they were completely out of toiletries for their clients so our gifts were very well received! In fact, when I was waiting in line to speak with one of the volunteers, a homeless person was paying 50 cents to have a shower and was told there was no shampoo… I said “I can help with that….”.
Thanks again – it was a great Spring morning and your contributions were warmly received.
