Month-long donation drive for Mary Mac's

A shopping centre at Woy Woy has announced it will run a month-long donation drive for Mary Mac's Place in Woy Woy.

Mary Mac's Place serve over 500 meals a week from Monday to Friday to those most in need in the community and are 100 per cent reliant on donations to continue to provide this service.

Mary Mac's is operated by the Catholic Care Homeless Service.

Service coordinator Ms Catherine Pantehis said donations made at Deepwater Plaza would help ensure those doing it tough on the Peninsula have somewhere to turn to.

"Mary Mac's is open to anyone needing a helping hand," she said.

"We rely solely on donations and would love to see the local community get behind this wonderful initiative.

"The community's generosity will ensure we can keep providing meals and other important services to those who need it the most on the Peninsula," Ms Pantehis said.

Deepwater Plaza's centre manager Ms Marcelle Proper said: "Organisations such as Mary Mac's Place are critical to the local community.

"They rely heavily on the support of individuals and local businesses.

"That's why, this August, Deepwater Plaza shoppers can donate food, toiletries and laundry items at our Mary Mac's donation hub opposite Coles," said.

Donated items will be given directly to Mary Mac's Place at the end of the month.

"Additionally, until August 24, shoppers can opt to purchase a $2 or $5 food plate and place their plate on the donation wall to show their support."

These plates will then cover the cost of a $2 or $5 meal at Mary Mac's for someone in need.

"We're hoping through this activity we'll be able to raise awareness of the stark reality that is the ever-increasing need for food relief," Ms Proper said.

Deepwater Plaza would match each plate donated to a maximum of $2500, she said.
