Patti and Angela are our wonderful volunteers who have helped for a number of years. Their faithfulness, cheery and happy smiles are regularly there every Tuesday and Friday, unpacking the food trolley, putting the food away and then organising the food parcels to help the many families in our community who are struggling.
In Victoria alone, one in eight families are doing it tough and look to charity organisations to help them with their basic needs of food. Crossway LifeCare is one such organisation and the generosity of Crossway people is helping those families.
Although our pantry is small at the moment we have big plans for the future. Our new LifeCare building will have a large walk-in pantry which will enable people to choose from the food selection for their food parcels. It is very exciting! The expansion means being able to help even more families in need in our community.
We are grateful for the continuing, generous supply of donations. If you wish to donate, we accept non-perishable goods ‘in date’ and they can be left in the LifeCare Donation trolley, which is located in the foyer at Crossway.
