Appeal. For some, the winter months are filled with uncertainty for what may lie ahead.
Seeking to support those feeling the cold, Circular Head Youth Leaders will again host their annual Winter Woollies drive.
An initiative of the Youth Advisory Group, the annual appeal has continued to provided a source of support for many throughout the past decade.
CHYL member Charlie Young says community members can lend a helping hand by donating to the cause with blankets and non-perishable food.
“You’re helping people in need when they really need it,” he says.
Winter Woollies donations including blankets and clothing must be clean and in good condition.
Whether sparing a simple pair of socks or a beanie to a blanket or coat to keep the cold away, all donations will be treasured: “It might only be little but it will make a big difference,” says Charlie. “You’re creating change in the community.”
Winter Woollies donations can be dropped off at Smithton IGA and Woolworths until Wednesday June 13 before Circular Head Aboriginal Corporation and Wyndarra Centre distribute the items throughout the local community.
