Making it all happen ….
We Care Connect can give freely because we receive freely. So many wonderful people across the Central Coast are supporting vulnerable children in our community by sharing their pre-loved children’s items. These direct-action gifts from the heart really make a difference.
The generosity of our local community is providing essential items to local disadvantaged families and sharing the joy of parenting. We are also proud that we are doing our part in reusing and recycling much-loved items to help protect our precious environment.
Together we are saying ‘no’ to poverty in our community.
We Care Connect is 100% volunteer-based. It takes thousands of hours to collect, sort, pack and distribute everything we give to vulnerable families. Volunteers are the strength of our program, so many people devoting their time, energy and hard work.
Our volunteers contribute is so many ways, all invaluable: some can manage an hour or two, others contribute days of work a week; some sort & pack, others bring IT, networking, management, promotion and many other needed skills.
We were really proud to win the 2018 Central Coast Region Volunteer Team of the Year Award.
Wonderful individuals, schools and preschools, congregations, community clubs, service clubs, businesses large and small, corporations, sister organizations, the Central Coast Council, grant funders, and our local State & Federal MPs support us in amazing ways.
We have also received support from groups outside the Central Coast who have become major supporters!
The support we receive is as varied as our supporters. Invaluable pro bono professional support, invaluable financial support and invaluable hands-on and in-kind support. So many thanks to everyone of you!
