We're helping out with Uniting Food For Families

After everything we’ve gone through this year, we all want Christmas to be extra special. But for many families, it will be so much tougher to afford a celebration and good, nutritious food for their children over the holidays.

In the lead up to Christmas, WAW is partnering with Uniting Vic.Tas in the Food for Families campaign by calling for donations to help our local communities in need.
 
Catherine Byrne from Uniting’s Emergency Relief Program in Wodonga said that due to the impact of COVID-19, more families than ever before are expected to seek emergency assistance.
 
“The impact of job losses and the extended lockdown has stretched many family budgets to breaking point,” said Ms Byrne.
 
“While life as we know it stopped during lockdown, the bills never did. Whether it’s the rent, gas, electricity or water or putting food on the table and fuel in the car, we know people are really struggling.
 
“Food for Families is one of the highlights of each year for us – and we are determined that no one is going to go without enough food this Christmas.
 
“We hope you, your group, school, workplace or family can support Food for Families and help us make sure all the families in our community can have a great Christmas celebration.”
 
Please visit any WAW Credit Union Service Centre to donate or drop off non-perishable food items.
