Seniors donate to Mary Mac's

Mary Mac's Place has received a number of items for its homeless and disadvantaged patrons kindly donated by participants of the Peninsula School for Seniors.

Mary Mac's Place coordinator Ms Robyn Schacht said a special morning tea was organised to officially accept and thank the School for Seniors members for their generosity.

"A bus load of enthusiastic retirees from the School for Seniors visited Mary Mac's Place for morning tea with their volunteers on June 16," Ms Schacht said.

"The School for Seniors, which meets at the Peninsula Community Centre, has just celebrated its 20th birthday and coordinator Rhonda Mitchell has been at the helm for 18 of those 20 years.

"The 24 women and men arrived laden with donations of groceries and beautiful hand-knitted rugs to assist the homeless and disadvantaged people who come to Mary Mac's.

"These valuable donations will be a real boon for the increasing numbers of families and individuals who are battling to pay the rent."

Ms Schacht said a recent survey revealed that 37 per cent of the patrons who came to Mary Mac's Place for a meal and assistance were homeless, transient or "sleeping rough".

"Winter is a particularly tough time for these people who struggle just to keep warm and dry," Ms Schacht said.

"This is a wonderful example of the great benefits that flow from sharing the skills and experience of our older, retired members of the community."

Other local groups are invited to contact Robyn on 0417 671 973 for more information on becoming involved with Mary Mac's Place.
