Food drive for Mary Mac's
A "food drive" is being held at a Woy Woy shopping centre to support Mary Mac's Place.
Mary Mac's manager Ms Catherine Pantehis said the food drive would help Mary Mac's feed hundreds of in need people this Christmas.
"The donations will be used to directly purchase the meat we need to provide over 90 meals per day," she said.
"The donations towards meat allows us to continue to provide nutritious meals to those who need them."
Mary Mac's provides a hot lunch Monday to Friday to those on the Peninsula needing a helping hand.
The service also provides essential services like washing and shower facilities and a vital link to services such as Legal Aid and housing services.
"Often members will visit purely for social inclusion as they live in isolation.
"Money (and in turn, meat) donated during Deepwater Plaza's Christmas food drive is very much appreciated.
"Mary Mac's Place is not funded.
"We rely on donations or grants to provide this service to our community", Ms Pantehis said.
Donations can be made in the collection buckets at Nev and Jim's Butchery until Christmas at Deepwater Plaza.
A local shopping centre and a local butchery business are holding a Christmas food drive for Mary Mac's Place Woy Woy.
The donated cash will be converted to vouchers which will allow Mary Mac's Place to purchase fresh meat from the butchery for meals this Christmas and into the New Year.
