In a year where our resilience, resolve and compassion are tested, it’s heart-warming to see the sensational community support that is enabling organisations like Drought Angels to forge ahead with their outstanding work in the rural sector.
Mark Ryan, The Glennie School Parents and Friends’ Association President, and his family, ventured out to the Drought Angels headquarters in Chinchilla recently to present the Drought Angels team with a $3,366 donation in support of their operations on behalf of the Association.
Natasha Johnston, who is a Glennie Old Girl and co-founder of Drought Angels, and her husband, Steele, showed the Ryan family through their headquarters and outlined how the process works – from receiving donations to dispatching food hampers and care packs.
Mr Ryan said that Drought Angels has considerable reach and impact and encourages anglican focus readers to drop into the gift shop.
“They offer financial assistance and personalised support to thousands of farming families across Australia. The mechanics behind the gift shop are very impressive and worth a look if you are in the area,” Mr Ryan said.
Drought Angels provides a unique service for which it has become well known within the rural sector and among valued sponsors.
While it is fantastic to give the necessary material items, the ability to reach out and listen to those struggling is the most beneficial.
Drought Angels donations are very much a ‘thank you’, rather than a handout.Jump to next article
