The power and love of family volunteering goes a long way, and every school holidays we offer families the opportunity to bring smiles and lunches for asylum seekers and refugees. Chloe (13) and Anna (10) together with mum Catherine once again raised their hands to make and serve lunches for clients at the Asylum Seekers Centre, Newtown over the last school holidays.

Catherine writes: “Hi Guys, Just thought I’d share this photo of my girls, Chloe & Anna, heading into the ASC for a day of service. Another fulfilling day for all of us – thank you for the opportunity to allow our girls a meaningful way to give back!”

Anna (10): “It felt nice to serve people delicious food because they are less fortunate than I am.”

Chloe (13): “It was an eye opening experience to serve all these people who have gone through so much.”
