Colleagues unite for good causeNovember 14, 2019
For many, Christmas time is deemed the “season of giving.”
For the Academic and Medical Services team at Epworth HealthCare, the theme of giving is present year-round.
Generous supporters of Food For Families, the team collects food and toiletries across its five Melbourne sites throughout the year.
“Our staff really get behind Food For Families, because it’s a practical way to support people,” Epworth team member, Romy said.
“Rather than doing one big collection leading up to Christmas, we try to collect a box or two of donations each month.”
“And we try to collect items that aren’t commonly donated, like sanitary products and nappies.”
Each month Romy emails her colleagues, requesting donations.
And the response is always strong.
“People often check in to see what they should donate to ensure we have a good spread of food and toiletries,” Romy said.
“We many work across different locations, but we all unite to donate to Food For Families.”
