The organisation is calling on the community to lend a helping hand by donating new and unopened items such as soap, roll-on deodorant, shampoo, conditioner and toothpaste. 

“These essential toiletries make a huge difference in the lives of those who may be facing challenging times,” a spokesperson said.

“Even though the donation drive is being run around Easter, Better Together will take donations any time of the year. 

“As well as toiletries, Better Together will take unopened, in-date pantry items like pasta, pasta sauce, spreads and other dry goods. 

“These are provided to the community through our Emergency Relief program.” 

Fresh food such as fresh fruit and vegetables are best delivered on a Monday or early Wednesday for the community to access during the Helpful Hearts Pantry on a Wednesday.

For the Easter Essentials campaign, locals can drop off donations at the Better Together Community Centre at 16a Robert St, Atherton. Every donation big or small will make a meaningful impact to someone in need.

Clothing and household items are better donated to Vinnies, the Salvation Army, Red Cross, Animal Welfare and The Access Place. Better Together works closely with these organisations for people who require clothing and other household items.

If any farmers, gardeners or retail stores have extra food or personal items that will end up in landfill consider giving Better Together a call on 4091 3850 when considering where to donate.
