Generous donation to Vinnie's

Big W Parkes have lent their support to those in need during these tough times with a generous donation to the St Vincent de Paul Society, as coordinated by Good360.

Regional Director Kelly Morgan said Vinnie's received two pallets of Easter eggs and apparel which have been distributed to people in the Parkes and surrounding communities.

"We partnered with Meals on Wheels and delivered the chocolates to them to distribute through their program, giving special treats to those they serve," she said.

"The apparel we received will certainly be appreciated as we assist those in need of these items through our assistance program."

Ms Morgan said Vinnies members have continued to provide support to those in need via phone assistance during the COVID-19 pandemic,.

"This continues to be assistance with food, electricity, telephone, medical bills, transport and accommodation, either through us or by referrals to other agencies as required," she said.

"We would like to thank Big W for supporting the community and the St Vincent de Paul Society with this generous donation."
