Giving Bee – donate items and volunteer

August 14 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

We’re hosting a Giving Bee!

What’s a Giving Bee? It’s kind of a busy bee, but it’s a weekend donation & volunteering drive.
We’re holding this in Vic Park, in support of a bunch of great local charities!
Have you been meaning to sort out your pantry? Update your wardrobe? Do some shopping for a cause?
Do your kids have more toys than they really use? Do your pets?!
Have you ever thought about volunteering and wanted to see if it’s for you?
Or maybe you’d just like to meet some awesome neighbours and learn about some great groups in your community.
Either way, this is for you!
Bring yourself and whatever you can to 248 Gloucester St, East Victoria Park (off Kent St, next to John Macmillan Park), between 10 and 12 on Saturday 14 August.

Drop off and head off, or stay and help us sort. Every little bit helps!
