Free goods on of­fer at Life Care

Central and North Burnett Times - - ENTERTAINM­ENT -

THE team at the Life Care Mun­dub­bera Food Pantry will wel­come Burnett res­i­dents to its first Free Clothes Day for the year this week­end.

The event will start at 8am on Satur­day at the Food Pantry premises on Stu­art Rus­sell St, where items in­clud­ing clothes, li­nen and toys will be avail­able for free to any­one in need.

Many of the items on of­fer were do­nated by busi­nesses and res­i­dents.

Event or­gan­iser Al­lan Cowburn said the event pro­vided a great op­por­tu­nity for res­i­dents.

“The event is for any­one and ev­ery­one,” he said.

“It doesn’t mat­ter if you drive a Mercedes-Benz or if you are liv­ing on the street.”

The team will sell hot food on the day, serve barista-made cof­fee to vis­i­tors and will also be open for gen­eral busi­ness.

Satur­day’s Free Clothes Day will be the se­cond one of its kind for Life Care, which bor­rowed the idea from a pop­u­lar Mono­go­rilby event.

The Life Care team has stated that fur­ther events of this kind were planned through­out the year, and the or­gan­i­sa­tion asked res­i­dents to con­tinue do­nat­ing clean old clothes in good con­di­tion for fu­ture events.
