Woolworths has already made their first delivery of toilet paper to the Meals on Wheels Central Coast branch in Tuggerah with more deliveries across NSW to follow in the next week.
Meals on Wheels volunteers in the Tuggerah area will now start hand delivering a 4-pack of toilet paper along with their usual prepared meals to those they service in the community. Love it!
Woolworths Supermarkets Managing Director, Claire Peters says: “We are pleased to begin working with Meals on Wheels in NSW to help provide for the eldery and vulnerable in the community.
“Due to the unprecedented demand on certain products in our stores, we’ve heard that many elderly and vulnerable people in the community are missing out on items they may need when they shop.
“While we’ll continue to do our very best to continue restocking our stores, we encourage all Australians to be mindful of those in your community at this time who might need help and ensure that we continue to support each other.”
Adds Meals on Wheels NSW CEO Les MacDonald: “We run special shopping assistance programs for the elderly at various Meals on Wheels branches around NSW and our volunteers have faced challenges in sourcing products such as toilet paper for those we support.
“We would like to thank Woolworths for recognising that Meals on Wheels is an integral part of all communities and for lending a helping hand at this time to support the most vulnerable in our community.”
