The Woy Woy branch of the Country Women’s Association is seeking donations of bedding and towels to support bushfire-affected communities on the NSW South Coast and in far east Gippsland.
Branch president Ms Jane Bowtell said members were collecting donations on behalf of Central Coast Disaster Relief.
“They are currently in need of new bedding for the isolated communities on the South Coast and far east Gippsland areas that are still trying to recover,” Ms Bowtell said.
“Items needed include new towels, sheet sets, doonas, doona covers and blankets.
“If you have any new bedding or towels at home or would like to purchase some, we would be very grateful.
“We are also in need of cleaning products.
“We are at the Woy Woy CWA Hall every Wednesday from 8am until 1:30 pm.
“One of our members will also be there on Friday, March 20, to accept donations,” Ms Bowtell said.
Central Coast Disaster Relief’s next convoy of goods is heading out on March 21 to these communities.
“As a branch, we understand the strain it puts on communities to be constantly asked for help and we are all suffering donation fatigue.
“Rest assured everything that you give either to us or any other Country Women’s Association branches goes exactly where we say it goes and it gets there immediately,” Ms Bowtell said.
