CWA branch delivers donations to South Coast
Members of the Umina Beach branch of the Country Women's Association have delivered a carload of donations to fire-affected communities on the South Coast.
The branch called for donations of clothing, baby care, toiletries and hygiene items for the community of Narooma on January 4 and were inundated with donations.
Branch publicity officer Ms Margaret Key said the Peninsula community had donated an incredible number of items with everything from eyedrops and lip balm to grocery vouchers.
"I'm overwhelmed with gratitude to know that I live, work and play amongst an amazing generous community.
"To help out our fellow Australians in this way is not only humbling but gives us confidence in the human spirit.
"This is humanity at its finest.
"These donations will lift the spirits of our friends down south.
"To know that they are cared for and thought of in such a way is amazing.
"What started out as a little idea to help out has grown to something extraordinary," Ms Key said.
