Well you can tell it is December with the towns looking lovely with their Christmas Decorations up. This time of the year can be difficult on many people though. Our emergency foodbank has been very busy. Donations are greatly appreciated and really do make a difference. You may have spare eggs from the chickens or some garden produce you may like to donate. We also accept unopened non-perishable grocery items. If you would like to make a donation but cannot pop in during open hours, Monday to Friday 9.30 am – 4.30 pm, you are welcome to leave them by the door. To all of the people who make donations both now and throughout the year we would like to say a huge thank you. You may think it was just a can of baked beans and not a big deal, but your kindness and generosity combined with that of others does make a large difference.
Our term program from next year is still being pieced together and confirmed. The dates should be going up over the next week on our website www.milparacommunityhouse.org.au and we will have a program available as soon as it is finalised.
Yesterday Monday December 10 was the last day of the Orange the World – 16 days of activism against violence. We would like to congratulate our community on supporting this important campaign. It has been wonderful to hear great discussions.
Have a great week from all the team at Milpara.
