Ensuring Victorians receive necessities such as food and clothing
We Care Community Services is a not-for-profit organisation assisting individuals and families in the South Eastern region of Melbourne who are suffering from hardship. We supply essential items such as food, clothing, toiletries, and bedding without charge to those in need through our ongoing community events and our volunteer run Helping Hand Centre and Community Shed.
In the last 12 months, the We Care Community Shed has provided 2824 people in the South Eastern region of Melbourne doing it tough with food parcels and basic necessities.
Our dream is to make sure families and children do not go hungry ensuring they have food to eat daily. We have seen many saved from abject poverty or near disasters and our vision remains to improve the quality of life for all people, equipping them for a better future.
Our Community Shed is the number one go to destination for food and necessities in our region right now and we want to support as many people in our community at possible.
At a time when donations are low and demand is high, a grant from Sunsuper's Dreams for a Better World program will equip our Community Shed with a ready supply of food parcels for distribution to our community members. It will allow us to set up a Foodbank operation, stocking up on food supplies, non-perishable and frozen goods to ensure we can provide continuous supply of food parcels and support those in need.
