Letter to the Editor - April 20: Donations make a difference

TO ALL our dear friends and supporters.

There are so many people who help our daily operations and it would be great to get around to you all to say a heart-felt thank you.

Without your generosity the Soup Kitchen could not operate.

This letter is our way of saying hello and thank you at the same time.

The soup kitchen started in 1990, a small operation entirely run and operated by members of the Coffs Harbour Uniting Church.

It grew from small numbers, just one on the first day, and in the early to mid-1990s daily numbers of 80-90 diners were not uncommon.

Today we have nearly 50 people on our roster, a team for every day led by a team leader. We also assist with food parcels in times of crisis for diners, as well as having blankets etc and some clothing for the tough times (winter is coming).

Each and every donation is important to us.

It is a sign that someone cares about what we do and they value our work.

This is incredibly uplifting: it gives us cause to be optimistic about our future.

Each and every donation is important to us.

Your support and donation is recognised as an essential and valued part of all that we do. Thank you.

Phil Crofts, on behalf of the Coffs Harbour Uniting Church Soup Kitchen
