Many hearts and heads were warmed on the night of Hope Within Reach’s Winter Warmth Outreach, held at Hugh Muntz Park Beenleigh. Hand knitted beanies of all colours, sizes and designs were given out to the community. Clothing, children’s winter pj’s, canned food, frozen meals and toiletries were distributed to those in need.
Global Care’s Blue Army were in full force as they served the community with a free sausage sizzle, home made soup and chile con carne. A free dessert of ice cream and candy was on offer for all. A sense of connection and contentment lingered in the atmosphere as the community enjoyed a meal as they were serenaded by a live show of talented, local musicians.
Free haircuts were also given to those wanting a little bit of a spruce up. Children played throughout the beautiful afternoon into the evening in the kids zone. Colourful fluorescent glow in the dark sticks lit up the park as children enjoyed the evening of compassion, care and community.
A fantastic way to to go out with a bang for Hope Within Reach’s Winter Warmth events 2019. Stay tuned for next years!
