The Salvation Army, Hilltops Community Hub, Young Food Hall and others decided that the people of Uarbry would need non-perishable food amongst other items to help them get back on their collective feet again.

Hilltops Community Hub Manager Naomi Peters said she felt compelled to do something for her bush neighbours.

“Danielle and Brett Butterworth, who are volunteer’s at the Hilltops Community Hub had access to a number of helpful contacts and set about getting things in motion to donate a large quantity of non-perishable items,” she said.

“Assistance came from the Hilltops Hub alongside the Salvation Army, Laurel Merrin of the Young Food Hall and representatives of Argyle Community Housing and within hours Danielle and Brett had acquired 10 large boxes for delivery toCoolah.

“Danielle and Brett Butterworth met members of the Coolah Lions Club on Saturday, February 18 with that very special delivery from Young.

“It meant a lot to make this donation on behalf of the town of Young as hearing about and seeing photos coming from the area had hit really close to home especially for Danielle and Brett who lost everything when a flood went through their home at Murringo in 2009 and they are very grateful to give back to those in need.”

Young and Cootamundra Corps Salvation Army officer Lesley Newton said one phone call started the food drive.

“I received a phone call from Laurel Merrin at Young Food Hall who had a request from Young Hub to arrange for some non-perishable food for those who had been affected by the bushfires,” she said.

“When disasters like this happen it is a normal response, a desire to do something to help those who have lost all they have. It can be hard to know what to do, however, this is something practical. To have an opportunity like this, to be able to bless those we will never get to meet is a privilege.”
