Following on from two successful fundraisers, both raising over $40,000 each, WestCare Community Services have high hopes for their upcoming annual dinner in September.
The charity has launched a new initiative this year titled the ‘Penrith City Care Kit Program’ where a variety of essential care kits will be distributed to vulnerable residents of Penrith.
There are a range of kits including baby and infant packs with pre-natal and post-natal necessities, hygiene kits with soap, shampoo and conditioner among other items as well as packs for the elderly.
“It’s a really exciting initiative,” said Assistant Director of WestCare, Andrew Paech.
“It’s based on programs that we currently run and while networking with other local charities, we try and provide to a wide range of people, particularly children.”
The event starts at 6.30pm on Thursday, September 10 and will be held at the Coffee Club Nepean River.
