Cri­sis group helps out lo­cals

Western Times - - NEWS -

IT’S BEEN a year filled with mak­ing a dif­fer­ence for the Tara Cri­sis Group.

The 12-mem­ber group meets once a month to raise funds and sup­port com­mu­nity ini­tia­tives.

Tara Cri­sis Group sup­port com­mit­tee chair­per­son Mary Young­berry re­flected on the group’s key achieve­ments this year.

She said their work in­cluded a do­na­tion to a den­tist group that vis­its Tara each Easter, sup­port­ing An­zac Day ac­tiv­i­ties and mak­ing a $500 do­na­tion to the Tara Scout Group for new equip­ment.

Mrs Young­berry said two group mem­bers came up with an­other great idea, putting to­gether care pack­ages for men do­ing it tough in the drought.

“It ap­pears women and chil­dren usu­ally get things do­nated but men, just the ba­sics like ra­zors and de­odor­ant... are in­clined to go with­out,” she said.

The cri­sis group also as­sisted at the Bloomin’ Cre­ative art show­case, and sup­ported An­gel Flight.
