Thank you to all those who came along to our open day. The group has decided to hold a day time slot only from 10am—1pm on Monday’s and on a fortnightly basis starting 16th May. The first “official” group meeting will be held in the Meeting Room. All are welcome to come (children included) and join. We will be updating the parish of a regular basis on what is coming up.
What we are doing at Vinnies
The impact of the flooding in northern NSW has been devastating and is a further blow to a community that was adversely impacted by floods in 2021, bushfires in 2020 and the COVID pandemic.
NSW SES teams have received over 8800 calls for assistance so far, with 300 flood rescues overnight alone. Further evacuations are in place today and you can check the affected areas here and access a list of current evacuation centres here.
A Flood Response group at Vinnies has been formed and will meet regularly over the coming days to coordinate our response – to both support our people in affected areas and provide the most appropriate care and assistance to communities impacted by the floods.
The Society has launched a Vinnies NSW Flood Appeal / (St Vincent de Paul Society NSW - Flood Appeal (vinnies.org.au) and is getting ready to support the community with financial payments as part of the recovery efforts. Members will lead this response on the ground, offering support at recovery centres and Society locations that are accessible. More information on this work will be shared as we establish our supports in key centres and as the floodwaters recede.
