WE ARE OPEN, BUT THINGS HAVE CHANGED

 

$10
payable

We will be offering our “Staples” hamper, with a varied selection of pantry items, bakery items, fruit and vegetables for $10. This is a required purchase for all clients visiting the centre, and each hamper will contain the same items.

We understand that you may not want all items in the Staples hamper, but please take everything with you and pass along items you won’t use to someone else who will.

In addition, you may wish to buy our “Meat/Protein” hamper or “Personal Hygiene” hamper.

You will be able to view these prior to purchase, and also make some changes to the contents to better suit your needs. The prices for these will be clearly displayed each week, and will depend on the produce we have available.

We also know that many people have special dietary requirements. Our supplies are limited at the moment, however if you make your needs known to us, we will do our best to find suitable produce for you.

PLEASE NOTE ONLY REGISTERED CLIENTS ARE ABLE TO USE OUR SERVICES

CAN YOU HELP?

The lock-down restrictions may be easing but the need for assistance is as great as ever.

Hornsby Connect, with the support of Coles Berowra, is seeking donations of non-perishable groceries for us to distribute to those in need.

Simply buy one or more extra items next time you shop and place them in the marked collection bins outside Coles Supermarket in the Berowra Village Shopping Centre, 1c Turner Road, Berowra Heights.

Look for this sign to donate.

“A hand up for people in need!”

Providing affordable food for those who need it most

at Hornsby Youth & Family Community Centre,
corner Muriel & Burdett Streets, Hornsby
(entry via Burdett Street gate) 

The aim of Hornsby Connect is to provide support and hope to those that need it most within the community. With a growing population, the Hornsby Shire covers a large region and has fallen victim to the many social issues that are reflected within the wider society.

One major issue identified is the isolation and dislocation that some experience within our community. Whether it be the elderly or the young, due to cultural separation, or people experiencing financial hardships, Hornsby Connect is open for you.

LIFELINE STILL PROVIDING VITAL COMMUNITY SUPPORT

Lifeline Harbour to Hawkesbury’s counselling and telephone support services are running as usual with a few modifications for everyone’s health and safety.

DID YOU KNOW?

Last year we distributed over 100,000 kgs of food, to more than 5,000 recipients, and served over 6,000 hot meals to clients at our centre. We are so grateful for the dedication and commitment given by our wonderful volunteers who help make this all happen each week

You will require a current Working With Children (WWC) number to be eligible to work as one of our volunteers. This is a requirement of Hornsby Connect and Hornsby Shire Council, the managers of the Youth and Community Centre where we operate.For more information on Working With Children numbers visit the Office of the Children’s Guardian website.

Donations of non-perishable food and money is also appreciated to help us continue this much-needed service. Click on the “Donate” button above for more details.
