Help relieve social isolation for the elderly and bring happiness to their day by registering to become a PENPAL!
If you like writing letters or messages, making cards and drawings this is a great activity for you.
We will assign an elderly person to you who is currently living in residential care or living on their own to become their penpal.
Each week over the next 3 months, you will send cards, drawings or letters which will be received by that person.
Care2Give is a new opportunity for families and children to “give back” during this time of crisis in the community for the METRO – SYDNEY area.
Kids Giving Back is working with charities to identify needs of organisations and individuals. We have a range of groups with specific requirements. The opportunity exists for volunteers to collect from their pantries or purchase required items and assemble a care pack. Volunteers can then drop to the nominated vulnerable person or organisation in need.
They stitched, glued, drew, laminated, designed and packed! Our Kids helping Kids – School Holiday program had 30 wonderful young people aged 8-16 yrs busy creating 60 puppets, 2 puppet theatres and 30 activity packs! All to be donated to shelters for homeless families and young children in bushfire affected areas.
Wow! Our Kids Giving Back team crashed all our records in our Helping Hands for the Homeless – School Holiday program on 14th January 2020! A total of 308 items prepared – 258 nutritious meals and 50 care packs for people living rough on the street. Will2live came and collected all and distributed to some very grateful people. Thank you to all our wonderful young people who worked so hard!
