Today Mrs Maelinar went to Galilee to make a clothing donation at the Pearce Community Centre.
We understand the clothing was put to immediate use, and the ladies who were at the centre were very thankful that somebody had shown up when they did.
What moves me about this story is this is a Canberra kid, and a Canberra charity doing it tough. If you are a bit bored of the ‘oh if you really must‘ kind of feeling that some of the bigger charities seem to give you (not to mention the tip donation bins), I’d encourage all Rioters to consider getting involved in helping some local kids out.
We understand they are interested in hearing from you if you have thought about fostering as well.
Naturally, only bring the good stuff, leave the trash at the usual donation sites.
Out of respect for a poor little kid who would have potentially gone cold tonight, I’d appreciate if you kept the discussion civil.
