The coronavirus is only getting worse in our beautiful city. In some areas itโ€™s more concentrated than others. Brimbank council has seen a much higher number than most areas and this concerns us greatly. Weโ€™re now working alongside Brimbank Council to help make sure no one has to leave home to receive food, sanitary items, toiletries, nappies or formula. The stay at home rule is difficult to follow for isolated single parents who donโ€™t have someone to shop for them, are facing poverty and are putting themselves at risk by attending crowded shopping centres with small children. Brimbank council has […]

Can we please get another round of applause for Super Simon who showed up again today to take another run of nappies, formula, sanitary items, underwear and toiletries to the tower residents in Collingwood? Working alongside Rebecca and the incredible team at drummond street services means that we get to support hundreds more people in need especially in these incredibly difficult times. Simon is actually coming back on Monday to take out yet another load of essential items to these vulnerable families. Thanks again for allyour hard work, Simon. Youโ€™re one of the best ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿ™

A huge thank you to Simon, our superstar volunteer who not only shows up whenever we need him, but also keeps in touch with people sleeping rough and checks in just to see that theyโ€™re ok. Simon has been volunteering with us for over three years now weโ€™ve lost count of the number of times he has been there for us whenever weโ€™ve needed him. Today Simon picked up a car load of nappies, formula, toiletries and sanitary items and delivered them to the residents of the towers in Collingwood. A huge thank you to Ron from Drummond Street services […]

I know the photos are starting to look a bit repetitious but weโ€™re so proud to be able to do this. Another 1040 nappies and 58 tins of baby formula for the tower residents in Collingwood. Weโ€™re also sending in boxes of sanitary items and toiletries. This is all because of your wonderful support and generosity. Covid restrictions are hurting many people. Jobs have been lost, not everyone is eligible for jobkeeper payment and some families who relied on that few hours casual work each week to get through are now finding it hard to manage. One thing is for […]

Thanks to your incredible generosity weโ€™re now providing formula, nappies, sanitary items and toiletries to single parents who are struggling with isolation. Today our awesome superstar Dayle called in to pick up tins of formula, nappies, underwear, sanitary items and toiletries for Mums in need of support. Lockdown works differently for everyone and not everyone has the support of family and friends to help get them through. There are many reasons people end up completely on their own. Domestic violence is often a contributing factor, as is arriving into the country as a refugee, or just not having any family […]

Thank you so much to every single person who helped us get these urgent supplies of nappies, formula and sanitary items to the residents of the Melbourne towers during their total lockdown. A huge thank you to John and Gabriel from Costco for their special care and attention in helping us get the sheer volume of products we needed. A big hug and thank you to every single person who helped make this happen. Every one of you who donated, commented, shared or sent your love and support, we are so incredibly grateful to have you on our side. Moving […]

Can we please give a standing ovation and round of applause to the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre (ASRC) for their unconditional love and unwavering support for the residents locked down in the Melbourne towers. This incredible group of volunteers have cooked around 2000 meals for the residents. Not only that, they have taken the time to cook traditional flavoured meals inspired from the many countries of those who reside in the towers. It just doesnโ€™t get any more heartfelt and compassionate as this. I remember not long after I started this charity, it was only about 8 months when old […]

Today thanks to your generosity we took our second load of nappies, formula and sanitary items to the residents of the 3031-3051 towers and have another load ready to head out in the morning. Charities are considered an essential service so we will still be able to reach the residents of the towers even though the city has gone into lockdown again as of tomorrow. Unfortunately due to rules around contact points we cannot accept donations of products. We apologise for this however the more contact we have with people who are donating, the more chances we have of coming […]

As a charity today would have to be one of the hardest days we have ever witnessed. We loaded up the Outlander with nappies, formula, pads, tampons and other essentials and took them to the Melbourne towers for our first load to assist those in full lockdown. As we took the items in we saw many people in incredibly distressed states. One woman sat on the steps of her building crying hard and pleading to be let out. With tears running down her face she begged the 12 or so officers in front for her freedom. The police officers were […]

Thankfully most of the tower residents will be able to leave their homes as of July 10. As we move forward we will now be assisting single parent families who are unable to access sanitary items, formula and nappies during the six week stage 3 lockdown. We will be working with local community groups to drop these items directly to the families who are unable to safely access them themselves. Thank you so very much to everyone who has helped us achieve this incredible work. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™ As many of you know there are over 3000 people locked in 9 towers […]
