YMCAs in Tassie join in the fight against local hunger

YMCAs across Tasmania are now supporting Foodbank as official collection centres around the state.

In the past 12 months, thousands of emergency food boxes have been despatched by Foodbank to Tasmanian families doing it tough. This is an amazing effort by the Tasmanian branch of Foodbank although, it’s only scratching the surface of what needs to be done – they desperately need more donations.

From today YMCA centres in Southern Tasmania will be collecting donations for Foodbank. We urgently required packaged, boxed and canned food items that can be dropped at the following YMCA centres…

  • YMCA Glenorchy
  • Barossa Park YMCA Wellness Centre
  • Glenorchy Pool YMCA
  • Clarence Aquatic Centre YMCA
  • Rosny Park Golf YMCA
  • …and early in the new year, YMCA Launceston.

Next time you do your shopping, please consider buying an additional item for a family in need! Bring this with you next time you come in. Let’s see if we can make a difference.
