Good Sa­mar­i­tans pack a lit­tle help away

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

THE Sa­mar­i­tan Purse Shoe­box ap­peal was held in Mun­dub­bera, with 14 ladies trav­el­ling from Mur­gon to help the less for­tu­nate.

The ladies packed 28 shoe­boxes with sup­plies, that will go to­wards pro­vid­ing emer­gency re­lief and as­sis­tance to chil­dren suf­fer­ing around the world.

Sue Leder­hose, one of the organisers for the day, said chil­dren could each re­ceive one box of sup­plies.

“Chil­dren only ever re­ceive one shoe­box in their life­time be­cause the need is so great,” she said.

“The shoe­box min­istry is only a small part of it – it’s a soft ap­proach into a com­mu­nity to im­prove health, ed­u­ca­tion and agri­cul­tural prac­tices.”
