Milpara would like to acknowledge with great thanks the wonderful generosity of our community. It has been heart warming to receive donations to the Emergency Foodbank.
We have received large and small donations and they are all gratefully received. Some people may feel their small donation isn’t significant, however let us assure they are. One of the wonderful things to witness this time of the year is how small individual donations combined make such a HUGE difference.
Another way we can make a difference, and we shouldn’t undervalue, is to look out for others. The festive season can be a really sad time for some. It can be a time people may feel isolated, have negative thoughts and increased feelings of stress, loneliness, anxiety and depression. Remember the gift of a smile and compliment will cost you nothing, but may have a huge ripple effect.
Some helpful contact numbers: Lifeline on 13 11 14, Mensline on 1300 78 99 78, Kids Helpline on 1800 55 1800 and National Debt Helpline on 1800 007 007.
Milpara’s Staff and Volunteers would like to send everyone a big heart felt smile and whatever your situation, we hope you have the best Christmas you can.
