Caring is one of the main attributes that society needs.
Anglicare Warrnambool is attempting to share the care in our community by
providing assistance to the many people who need someone to care for them.
Families play a vital role in our community, yet the struggles they face
sometimes pose a very real threat to their stability. For families facing
issues such as unemployment, illness and poverty, Anglicare Warrnambool
provides much needed support and hope for the future.
Through the provision of food packs, Anglicare Warrnambool
is helping families and singles to help themselves. The food packs are
designed to help a family of four through six days of crisis and include a
menu and recipes to help with the preparation.
Anglicare Warrnambool is able to provide instruction in
budgeting and simple cookery and other life skills to assist in producing
nutritious meals for families within their budget.
The Anglicare office is staffed by volunteers, many of whom
are parishioners, and who meet each month for instruction and sharing of work
is open Monday to Friday from 10am to 11.50am.
