Event highlights how to help others in need
SOROPTIMISTS gathered in Atherton for a dinner recently to hear from guest speaker, Sue Garland, from the St Vincent de Paul Society.
The group heard how the charity organisation helps people in need in the region, providing aid to people after natural disaster events, and supporting individuals and families experiencing hard times.
“Sue explained that helping people who are experiencing homelessness, and residents after natural disasters remain at the core of the work of the society,” Soroptimist club member Sylvia Edwards said.
“Sue also shared the many other avenues of support available for those experiencing hardship and how the volunteers are there to help with a hand up.”
St Vincent de Paul in Atherton is located in Railway Lane and gratefully accepts quality secondhand goods to sell, with the proceeds going towards those in need in the community.
