Giving Back to Those Who Need It3 May 2019
The community of Lake Haven has come together to create care packages for people in need in their local area. A member of the community started recycling plastic bottles collected from various organisations in exchange for money to purchase personal care items and toiletries.
Our residents and volunteers at RFBI Lake Haven Masonic Village wanted to do their part and were thrilled to get involved in such a wonderful community project. Using commission earned from the Village’s vending machine, staff purchased additional items to be included in the care packages.
27 care packages were made to be collected and distributed to women’s refugees and homeless shelters. It was such a lovely feeling to be able to give back to those who need the most help that it got everyone excited to start a discussion on what to include in other care packages.
Some suggestions included were Vegemite, fly swatters and beer as residents thought our diggers would appreciate them. At RFBI, we care about our communities and provide assistance for those who need it.
