The MaD Team current statistics – 2014

As we prepare for our Christmas Appeal we thought we might share some stats about the great work our wonderful donors, volunteers and MaD team have achieved in the last couple of years. The majority of the MaD team met during flood recovery work in 2011 and still remain helping those in need. Working with Every1Counts Program and the assistance of a couple of schools great things have been achieved. The MaD team thank you.

75 families have been helped with everything, there have been many more single people assisted also.
Over 2,526 + toiletry packs have been donated to the homeless.
Over 1,000 + new blankets have been distributed.
Over 2,000 pair of new undies, 500 new outfits and literally hundreds of toys for PROJECT LOVE AND CARE.
JEBB HOUSE received hundreds of Christmas gifts and many many food hampers plus loads of clothing.
PEOPLE’S MISSIONS have received many donations of clothing and household items.
Over 500 pairs of new bras, and bags and bags of new clothing and Christmas gifts to HANNA’S HOUSE.

There are many more other Community groups which have also benefited from donations and we continue to support who ever needs our help.

  1. I make multi-coloured crocheted granny rugs of varying size (suitable for babies or throw rugs). They are made out of acrylic yarn so that they are machine washable. Would these be useful items to donate?

      • Could you please give me a definitive list of all the things you can use. I see you had a list for the hygiene packs previously. Is that what you need?
