Items needed for bushfire victims

    Recommended Posts

    Guest Libby1971

    This information was released to us today

     

    Clothing is no longer required, but toys, new and unopened toiletries, clean manchester and non-perishable food items are all being collected at the Wayville Showgrounds (Rose Tce in the Stirling-Angus Paviliion).

    All collection will cease this Friday. The Showgrounds are open between 8 am and 6pm daily. SVDPS will be taking monetary donations as well.

    Also, the Red Cross have been inundated with people donating blood in the last few days. However, blood will also be needed in 2-3 weeks when victims will still need treatment and supplies start to go down. Please consider donating blood if you are able to in a couple of weeks or so.

    Also books are being collected, novels etc, to be sent. Please donate what you can. Donations can be left with me to take to my school where collections are also done from. If you would like to know where to come to leave with me or which school to drop off at, pm me or email eawarner60@hotmail.com

    Thanks

    Want to Volunteer

     

    Thank you so much to everyone who has offered to assist in Sarah’s Bushfire Appeal - the response has been overwhelming!

    Given the sheer numbers of volunteers, it will be too difficult to individually coordinate everyone into any sort of system.

    So we suggest the following:

    Present yourself at Wayville showgrounds anytime between 8am and 6pm Monday to Friday and see Kym Masters, our volunteer coordinator, who can assign you a job.

    Or, present yourself to any of the following U-Store-It locations around Adelaide, all of whom would gladly welcome a helping hand:

     

    Gepps Cross

    575 Grand Junction Road

    Ph: 8262 5593

    Lonsdale

    20 Aldenhoven Road

    Ph: 8384 4333

    Norwood

    52 Sydenham Road,

    Ph: 8363 7155

     

    We have not confirmed our actions for the Weekend so please check here on our website on Thursday and Friday for details.

    Thanks again for your generosity

    See you at Ground Zero!

    Cheers,

    Sarah, Amanda and Monique

    Excellent post Libby

    We would have given blood as well but unable to do so as anyone who has lived in the UK for over 6 months between 1980 and 1996 isn't able to :sad:

    We have donated to the Red Cross though and going to look for items now that they're required

    Thanks for the list of items Michelle. I've just been round my house with a bin liner and filled it with items from the list! To actually donate things and not just money makes me feel like I'm helping in my own little way! Off to Lonsdale now.

    Even if you are a veggie like me????:biglaugh: They make appeals for blood and then exclude a large minority of the population that are willing to give it. Whats that all about??? :o

    Newsflash from my daughters School.

     

    Due to the overwhelming response to the Bushfire Appeal, they can take no more donations at the Wayville Showgrounds.

    My two took some stuff to the showgrounds this lunch time, there were queues of cars and loads of people they said they will no longer be taking anything as they are over full and flat out! This was for Sarahs appeal

    It is amazing the response here in times of need:notworthy:

    There is also an appeal by the rspca in victoria. You can donate online or take food to local shelters that will head for the affected areas.

    They estimate over a million animals have been killed in the fires.

    Unfortunatly the collection point at Lonsdale Storage unit is no longer taking donations either. It said on the notice to take donations to your local charity shop.
