HOW CAN I HELP ?
Join Us in Supporting our Community
THE LINK CARE
Providing direct relief from poverty, suffering, misfortune and distress...
on the Northern Beaches of Sydney and surrounding communities in NSW and Australia.
Our purpose is to provide assistance to families suffering hardship or distress through the provision of:
Crisis / emergency counselling for grief, violence, loneliness, etc.
Community Food Care distribution
Emergency accommodation for homeless and low income earners.
Your support in funding this project will be a blessing to those on the Northern Beaches
We would greatly appreciate your financial support during this challenging time to help us deliver these programs to those members of the Northern Beaches Community in most need. All donations over $10 are tax deductible. Click the "Donate" button, or by Direct Debit.
While we rely heavily on our valued volunteers to run these programs, our services are being stretched to unprecedented levels. It’s vital we maintain this service as the need on the Northern Beaches is greater than ever, this will necessitate the raising of funds every week over the coming months to support the daily running of these programs.
The donating of staples (non perishable groceries) would assist greatly in order to fill our CAREHAMPERS. Next time you at the shops you could purchase an item or two extra and drop them off at The Link Collective between 8am and 12pm, Tuesday - Friday at Unit 6/3 Vuko Place Warriewood.
Staples like spreads e.g jam, pasta, rice, cereals, canned tomatoes, bake beans and the like.
It’s one thing to initiate programs to help our community on the Northern Beaches, but none of it happens without the support of people like you. Volunteers are vital to the success of these program and the team at The Link Community Care is very grateful for the time you can devote.
Our core values at The Link Community Care are around providing direct relief from poverty, suffering, misfortune and distress to those on the Northern Beaches. Your decision to contact us with a view to volunteering ensures we continue to work towards fulfilling those values.
