With a bit of delay, we are finally reporting on a very successful and joyous volunteering event
at City Mission’s Distribution Centre in Grafton on March 17.
Eight of us were packing food bags and toiletries for those in need.
After working out a really effective and efficient assembly line, we just breezed through the activity and packed about 150 bags.
It was touching to see that aside from us there were also a young man in his thirties and a teenager still in high school.
We learned that they regularly spend their Saturday morning helping those in need. 
There is much kindness in this world when we open our eyes and look for it.
The event was such a success that we will no doubt plan for another one in the second half of this year.
Look out for communication on it in a few months.
