This November and December 2016, Eden Spa partnered up with Wollondilly Community Links & Wollondilly Community Pantry in brightening someone’s Christmas day.
Wollondilly Community Pantry (WCP) is a non-denominational service that provides affordable groceries, essential household items, sanitary items, fresh fruit and vegetables, milk, meats and bread to individuals and families of the Wollondilly and Wingecarribee LGA’s who are experiencing crisis or financial hardship.
Last year, and this year, WCP ran an extremely successful and uplifting Christmas campaign donating ladies handbags full of toiletries, goodies, treats and a whole lot more to local deserving women who use their services.
This year we pitched in filling up these bags with some luxury items from Eden Spa! We had plenty of clients donate so generously. We had an assortment of beautiful soaps, bath bombs, Pure Fiji Products and some even donated Eden Spa Gift Vouchers. We are amazed at the efforts clients have made in the spirit of giving at Christmas. Team Eden Spa ourselves donated products too, which we are sure someone is sure to love.
On December 19th we dropped off the mass amount of products to be donated. Upon walking through the doors we were greeted by volunteers and Paula Zrilic (from WCP), who would be packing and distributing the items.
We were welcomed so warmly and the community spirit was contagious! Paula and the wonderful volunteers showed us around and thanked us continuously. The products were dropped off just in time to be given away in WCP Christmas party. Natasha, one of the many volunteers who provide their time to keep the pantry running and community driven thanked us personally. She stated that donating these little luxuries will make the world of a difference for someone. And that's exactly why we participated in this campaign.
So once again, we would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who donated a little luxury to someone this year. It's not about how much we give, but how much love we put into giving.
Enjoy a safe and happy Christmas, New Year and holidays. We will see you all in the next busy few days and in the New Year!
