Lane Cove residents are generous. ITC see acts of generosity every day. Lane Cove also has one of the highest volunteering rates in Australia. At this time of the year, ITC Facebook Followers always ask us how they can help out or donate to someone in need. We have put together a list of local donation drives.
Stone Real Estate – Collecting for the Salvation Army
Stone Real Estate is collecting toys for the Salvation Army this year! Please help us them by donating new, unwrapped toys and putting them under their Christmas tree. Toys need to be donated by December 18th. Stone Real Estate is located at 144 Longueville Road Lane Cove. If possible try and buy some presents for teenage boys. A volunteer who sorted the gifts last year advised that there were not many gifts suitable for teenage boys. While you are there say hi to Rebecca Mitchell and thank her for being such a generous sponsor of In the Cove.
Lane Cove Council and Sydney Community Services
The Lane Cove Council is collecting non-perishable food items to distribute to those in need in our community. Just purchase an extra item when you are shopping at Woolworths and leave it in the shopping trolley located near help desk.
Health Space Lane Cove
The fabulous team at Health Space Clinics Lane Cove are collecting items for the homeless this Christmas. They will also be providing services to the homeless. If you can donate any of the items below – it would be so appreciated.
Lane Cove is such a generous community and at this time of year, ITC is regularly asked how locals can support Delvena Women’s Refuge. The staff at Delvena never know who is going to walk in the door and need their help. They need to have generic supplies on hand and that is why cash donations and gift vouchers are so appreciated. Find out more about how you can donate here. Delvena has advised that they do need new toys and gifts for children from new-born to 12 years of age for both boys and girls. Your generosity will ensure women and their children escaping domestic violence have a happier Christmas with a small gift to enjoy in their environment free from violence and abuse. Find out more about how you can donate here. You can drop off your donations at Sydney Community Services
A Little Ray of Giving
Over 898,000 children across Australia and New Zealand won’t receive a gift this Christmas. Ray White Lane Cove has set up a donation point in their office. Drop a present into their offices at 162 Longueville Road Lane Cove and they will make sure it goes to a deserving family in our community.
