Helping families get back to school
THE school year is just around the corner and community organisation Echo Empowering Services is putting the call out for donations to help families struggling at this time of the year.
Sadly, many families struggle to provide their children with uniforms, equipment and lunchbox items and Echo wants to help ensure a stress free first school term of 2023.
Neighbourhood House Community Worker Bel Moore is asking for any donations of uniform items (including hats, socks and shoes), backpacks, lunchboxes, water bottles, stationary items, snacks and spreads and fruits to help assist these families.
“Anyone is who facing any kind of hardship can reach out to us to receive these donations,” she said.
“Sometimes if we don’t have these things available, we can also help with fuel to transport their kids to school.
“We can also transport any-one in the area to get their school supplies.”
Donations can be made at the Neighbourhood House at 11 Eacham Place or at their donation box at SPAR Malanda.
