Uniting Winter Appeal

Warm food and warm clothes are everyone’s priority at this time of the year. Uniting Barwon has been busy distributing food and clothing to people feeling the cold and having to manage their winter bills whilst feeding their families.

You can help families by donating the following items:

  • Soup, pasta sauces, long life milk, noodles, cooking oil, tinned vegetables, tuna and rice for the preparation of nutritious meals.
  • Warm clothing such as children’s track pants (sizes 8 to 12), girls leggings and men’s track pants (M,L & XL).
  • Material aid such as cutlery and saucepans are in demand for clients moving into what is often their first home.                    

ALL DONATIONS MOST WELCOME AND CAN BE  MADE VIA THE TRUSTY ST LUKES SHOPPING TROLLEY IN OUR FOYER.   GOODS ARE THEN TAKEN TO UNITING.

You can also add your financial support by donating to Uniting’s Winter Appeal here.
