We will be opening another centre at Turramurra shortly.
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.
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.
