Oz Harvest Hampers at Bambara Primary School
Every Tuesday at Bambara Primary School in Padbury, YouthCARE chaplain Sylvia receives donated goods from Woolworths and Aldi through Oz Harvest.
“Once the food is delivered, we make up hampers for families in tough financial circumstances. All hampers have a variety of foods, depending on what is available, varying with dairy, fresh produce and frozen meals,” said Sylvia.
Recipient families are chosen each week by the Principal Linda and they are very appreciative of the support from the school.
“We have one single parent with four children at the school who was very grateful for the hamper. Since receiving her own, she now helps us identify more families in need in the school and even helps us deliver hampers in the community!” said Sylvia.
“Every week I receive heartfelt thank you’s from families. Oz Harvest have been a blessing to so many families.
“I feel so blessed to be a part of the giving, it has made me more aware of the hardships so many were facing, financially and emotionally,” said Sylvia.
