Bun­nings’ gen­eros­ity to fam­i­lies in need

Dalby Herald - - NEWS -

OF­TEN re­ferred to as one of the hardest times of year for fam­i­lies, Christ­mas can strain fi­nances and put ad­di­tional pres­sure on those who are al­ready do­ing it tough.

This week, the Dalby Cri­sis Sup­port Cen­tre re­ceived a gen­er­ous 30 gift ham­pers from Bun­nings Ware­house Dalby.

The ham­pers, fit­tingly decked out in Christ­mas colours, are filled with DIY craft kits, back-to-school sup­plies and non-per­ish­able food items.

Fam­ily sup­port worker Irene Tanks said this kind of do­na­tion helped make sure that chil­dren were re­ceiv­ing Christ­mas gifts.

“It helps get gifts to kids who may not other­wise re­ceive any­thing. It puts a smile on kids’ faces,” she said.

“It re­ally makes a big dif­fer­ence, be­cause, first off, you’ve got Christ­mas and then straight af­ter you’ve got school.”

Bun­nings Ware­house Dalby com­plex man­ager Scott Al­sop said the team was pleased to sup­port the Cri­sis Cen­tre.

“It plays a crit­i­cal role in sup­port­ing fam­i­lies who are in need and we look for­ward to see­ing this or­gan­i­sa­tion con­tinue its valu­able work in the com­mu­nity,” he said.
