Bethany Centre World Day of the Poor Food Drive
November 9, 2020 - November 13, 2020
Celebrate our common humanity
World Day of the Poor
Bethany Centre Food Drive
9 – 13 November
A few extra items in your shopping trolley will go a long way to supporting the locals amongst us doing it tough.
The Diocese of Parramatta is conducting a Food and Toiletry Drive at its Bethany Centre for the World Day of the Poor from 9 to 13 November, and asks the community of Western Sydney and the Blue Mountains to help by doing some simple shopping.
“In his message for the World Day of the Poor, Pope Francis invites us to ‘stretch out our hand to the poor’. A few extra items in your regular shop can make a big difference to those who live on the margins in our Diocese” said Patrice Moriarty, Social Justice Coordinator for the Diocese of Parramatta.
From Monday 9 to Friday 13 November 2020, everyone in the Diocese is encouraged to dig deep and bring in some of the following items to the Bethany Centre.
The goods can be dropped off at 470 Church St, Parramatta on the ground floor through or by contacting Marisa VanderHout (02) 8838 3460 or firstname.lastname@example.org
While they seem basic, these items will go far in supporting local people who are going through difficult times.
The donations will be going to two amazing charities supporting locals people needing a hand.
