This week we hear from the Director of CatholicCare Social Services Hunter-Manning, Gary Christensen, about the work continuing on the ground in our community.
The Taree and Forster Community Kitchens have continued to keep their doors open during the latest NSW lockdown to provide meals and support to those in need. CatholicCare’s Food Programs are also delivering meals to local communities across the Hunter region, as well as cooking up a storm at Hamilton South Community Hall every Wednesday. In the past 18 months alone, CatholicCare's Food Programs have delivered over 44,000 meals!
What can you do to help those in need?
There’s a variety of ways you can lend your support:
- Help us raise awareness of our programs by telling a friend or neighbour. You can keep up-to-date by following us on social media.
- Consider volunteering in one of our programs
- Keep our work, and the vulnerable people we support in your prayers,
- Consider a gift to our August Appeal.
CatholicCare Director, Gary Christensen said, “Thanks to donations from our community, we are able to continue serving hot and nutritious meals and providing our grassroots support to refugees and other locals who need a helping hand. It is the whole community that contributes to our work and we’re so grateful for the generosity, particularly as we all face challenging times. Thank you for keeping CatholicCare’s work in your thoughts.”
