Whether you may remember or not, last year Eden Spa supported Wollondilly Community Links & Wollondilly Community Pantry in brightening someone’s Christmas day. Plenty of our generous clients participated by purchasing and donating luxury spa, bath and skin care items underneath our giving tree. These items were then distributed to deserving women who attended the old Wollondilly Community Pantry. To catch up on this prior story, click here.
On Tuesday 14th March Eden Spa helped launch the new bigger and better Wollondilly Community Pantry, now called Our Community Pantry, at their new location in Tahmoor. The community spirit was infectious! We were surrounded by so many welcoming people and, of course, plenty of food! An abundance of customers were there to join the celebrations of the new launch. Alongside the customers included news crews, the dedicated volunteers, Wollondilly Council Members and officials from Food Bank Australia.
Introducing, Wollondilly's new Community Pantry - Our Community Pantry.
In celebration of the new pantry and location, there was heaps happening for the patrons, old and new. We were astounded and impressed with the lucky door prize - a trolley full of food valued at $500, as well as vouchers for local service providers), a corner designated to mini massages and hand treatments, along with a whopping 995 kilos of fruit and vegetables to give away. Wow!
We were honoured to be able to be apart of this event and volunteer our time. This is an organisation that we'll continue to support and strongly believe in.
