Tin Can Bay RSL volunteers have been busy sewing non-surgical masks and giving them out to veterans and community members in need
Over the last few weeks our wellbeing officers have been very busy in regards to ensuring our elderly veterans are coping at home with isolation and also the shortage of several grocery items.
We are aware of the isolation felt by many of our veterans and also members of the community with lack of transport and family members – with this in mind we have been in constant contact with the veterans and if required sourcing grocery items for them.
Thank you to June, Michelle and Terry for delivering our Easter Care Packages (especially Michelle who turned up with her cute Bunny Ears). Thank you also to our benefactor who paid for all of those packages.
Another of our volunteers has also been very busy sewing non-surgical masks. The Wellbeing Team has been giving these out to our veterans and community members in need.
Non-surgical scrub caps are also in high demand by nurses all over Australia at this time. Members of wonderful groups such as ‘Helping our Hospitals Heroes’, ‘Sewing for Charity’ and ‘Sewing Scrub Caps’ have made and distributed thousands of scrub caps so far.
In regards to ANZAC Day: unfortunately we are not holding our usual service. We have provided a wreath to one member who has expressed his intention to stand outside his home on the day to remember their sacrifices.
Currently we have several members receiving Palliative Care and some recovering from the flu. If you have been advised that your injection has arrived and cannot make your appointment because of transport problems, please let us know so we can (within current restrictions) take you for your shot. Very important for our vulnerable members.
Should you just wish to have a chat or require assistance, please do not hesitate to call (Maureen – 0408 882 917) and I will pass on your request to the relevant person.
Take care, stay safe and we will see you around the area.
