Shoe boxes full of com­pas­sion

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FEEDBACK -

THANK you doesn’t seem enough to all the peo­ple of our com­mu­nity who each year dig deep into their hearts and pock­ets to fill shoe boxes with lots of good­ies for chil­dren in war-rav­aged coun­tries.

Again this year it was amaz­ing to see these boxes come to me to be packed and sent away.

What a joy those boxes and knit­ted bean­ies etc will bring to 311 chil­dren.

To all the schools - Moss­man, Ju­lat­ten, Miallo, Dain­tree, Alexan­dra Bay - the churches - St David’s, Moss­man Unit­ing, Moss­man AOG, Ju­lat­ten Fel­low­ship - and also the peo­ple in the com­mu­nity who packed boxes as well as knit­ted dozens of won­der­ful bean­ies, thank you.

Also a big thanks once again to the Dou­glas Shire Se­niors and CWA ladies.
