Handmade Help

Handmade Help has started as a long term support for Victorian families who will be rebuilding their lives, their communities and their houses as a consequence of the bushfires. Pip from Meet Me At Mike’s explains it as well.

In addition to monetary donations in the first instance, please consider auctioning a handmade item, with proceeds to the Red Cross. You may wish to bid on an item yourself – there’s some good stuff already up for auction. Over the longer term, several business are drop off points for handmade goods (scarves, hats, blankets, household items etc) that will be distributed at appropriate times. As Pip has stressed, Handmade Help will be liaising with the Red Cross and the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal to ensure that items go to those in need.

Volunteers in Nillumbik:

If you wish to volunteer at the Diamond Creek emergency relief centre, please call the Shire Offices on 94333111 and provide your details and availability. A volunteer roster is being drawn up and you will be contacted and offered shifts.
