The coronavirus is only getting worse in our beautiful city. In some areas it’s more concentrated than others. Brimbank council has seen a much higher number than most areas and this concerns us greatly. We’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 don’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 […]

Our super team of socially distanced, masked up volunteers, Dayle, Jo and Kate spent their Saturday boxing up the last of the items heading north to the Yuendumu community in the Northern Territory. A huge thank you to these three absolute super stars for giving up their time. We appreciate you all so much. Unfortunately as the coronavirus spreads and becomes harder to contain in our lovely city we have had to make the very difficult decision to stop all packing days until further notice. We need to keep everyone safe and we feel that packing days pose and unnecessary […]

Take a look at this gorgeous scan photo! Today we got to visit Katie (Social distancing in place!) and deliver the wonderful gifts you have all bought for her and her girls. It was so lovely being able to drop everything off and know Katie now has absolutely everything she needs for the arrival of her baby girl. A huge thank you from us to everyone who had helped out. A big special hug to Angie and Geoff who have adopted this gorgeous little family and will be taking good care of them. A few words from Katie… To all […]

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. You’re one of the best 🥰🙏

Thanks to your incredible generosity we’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 […]

Can we give a huge round of applause for one of our incredible supporters, Nat Trajcevski. Nat nominated us for a $10,000 CommBank Staff Foundation Grant and we won! This money will be used to support even more people in need, especially those in hardship due to social isolation. Thank you so much Nat and thank you Commbank. We are so incredibly grateful for your support. Round of applause for Nat! 👏 👏👏👏

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 doesn’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. 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏 As many of you know there are over 3000 people locked in 9 towers […]
