Due to the evolving Northern Beaches outbreak, Our COVID-19 Older Persons Support Team have been making calls to this region to check on the wellbeing of members and will continue to do so. We are also sending 200 care packs to members affected in the area.
Our care packs include:
- 8 x disposable masks
- 3 x 10 pack alcohol wipes
- 1 x 50ml hand sanitiser
A big thank you to each and every one of you who has donated care packages to our fellow older Australians in Melbourne.
In addition to the 200 packs that National Seniors Australia has provided, because of your generosity, we’ve raised $13,300 - which equals 665 packages that have been distributed to where they are needed most!
Each care package contains:
- 5 disposable face masks
- 2 x 50ml hand sanitisers
- 2 x alcohol wipes packs (10 wipes in pack)
- And a guide from CEO Professor John McCallum on accessing the Older Person’s COVID-19 Support Line.
We’d also like to thank our partner Auswide Bank for its donation of $1,000 providing an extra 50 packages.
It’s not too late to donate either. Each packet costs $20, so if you have money spare, be rest assured it’s going to a great cause.
