Our club has launched a program called Virtual Neighbours - a new service to provide connectedness and assurance through regular phone or web calls to the elderly. We aim to reignite that 'local community feeling' of being valued and included in a time of social distancing & isolation.
We say to our community, especially the elderly – you are not alone! You can always speak to your friendly, trusted & caring Rotary Virtual Neighbour.
Our volunteer Virtual Visitors are recruited carefully taking into consideration their ability and willingness to commit to this important initiative. Our project team matches recipients and volunteers considering common interests where possible, and time availability. We enable the volunteers with the support required to provide this service
And we say to you - please help us with our outreach. If you would like to know more, do contact us on 0478 110 943 or via Facebook Messenger.
If you know someone who could benefit from this service, please speak with them or their carers in the first instance and encourage them to contact us. This way, we can always keep privacy, safety and confidentiality topmost in mind.
A BIG SHOUT OUT TO OUR LOCAL COMMUNITY - THANK YOU! ❤️ We are simply in awe of our local community in Sydney that came together to support and donate to this collection drive for Dress for Success Sydney. This has been our BIGGEST COLLECTION EVER
The last day to put a smile on one of these homeless kids faces is 19th December 2018
SHARE A LITTLE, CHANGE A LOT!
BRING SOME JOY TO KIDS NOT GOING HOME FOR CHRISTMAS 🎄
The Beecroft Rotary Tree of Joy is this year supporting Taldumande Youth Services kids. Our Rotary Tree of Joy is now up in Beecroft Place, Beecroft.
TOILETRY STARTER PACKS HAVE BEEN DELIVERED
We have today completed the packing of the toiletry starter packs for the 500 homeless Sydney kids who each year enter the services of Taldumande Youth Services.
Rotary Beecroft are so very proud of this achievement which could not have been done without the great support of YOU, our local community, who in the end, DONATED OVER 9,500 TOILETRY ITEMS!!!!!
Our wonderful volunteers who offered up their homes for our drop off addresses, and those precious volunteers that gave up hours/days/weeks to help sort and pack these 9,500 items into 500 toiletry packs and finally delivery them.
Another special thank you to JP and the staff at Custom Gear who were very helpful in getting the toiletry bags made up and printed for us in what was a tight time line
Cheers everyone and thank you. Let’s start putting these goodies away for our collection next year.
Since the very beginning the Rotary Club of Beecroft has been involved with many service activities and this Sundial is a great example of Council and Rotary working together in partnership to create something for future generations.
