Many more children will be warmer this winter thanks to a generous donation to Wyong-based charity, We Care Connect.
Members of Gosford North Inner Wheel donated 50 pairs of children’s pyjamas, as well as many books for older children, soft toys and handcrafted bags made by the Inner Wheel club members.
Susan Gaze said We Care Connect had been inundated with requests for warm clothes and bedding.
“They were thrilled to receive the pyjamas as with the nights getting cooler many vulnerable children on our Coast will now be cosy and warm,” she said.
A monetary donation was also given by Inner Wheel which will help support the thousands of children who live under the poverty line on the Central Coast.
We Care Connect supports local families by partnering with professional caseworkers from community centres and family support agencies that provide individual requests for the families they are helping.
Volunteers prepare support packages tailored to the family’s needs.
Support can include clothing, nappies, bedding, cots, prams, and other essential items need by families.
“The simple act of giving to families in need is at the heart of everything they do,” Susan said.
