Food drive sees Mary Mac's stocked well into spring
The Mary Mac's Place Winter Food Drive has received donations of about $4500 worth of food, according to organisers.
The donations have been used in food hampers for those experiencing hardship and financial difficulty, according to Mary Mac's Place coordinator Ms Catherine Pantehis.
They have also packed the Mary Mac's Place pantry with enough stock to see them through winter and well into spring.
Ms Pantehis said she had been "so impressed" with the community's response to the food drive held at Deepwater Plaza shopping centre.
"At times, we were overwhelmed with the volume which will undoubtedly make a huge difference to the support we are able to offer people.
"The food donated during the drive has stocked up the pantry for the next few months which means we can continue to provide this vital service."
Mary Mac's is managed and operated by CatholicCare and is located in Woy Woy, providing over 80 hot meals to local people every Monday to Friday, as well food hampers, washing and shower facilities and is a vital link to services such as Legal Aid and housing, she said.
