Community helps provide relief to RDNS SA clients
17 January 2014
RDNS SA would like to thank the South Australian community for supporting their 2013 Summer Appeal, enabling the not for profit organisation to provide Christmas hampers to 130 clients experiencing financial hardship.
Bronwyn Masters, General Manager of RDNS SA, says she was overwhelmed by the generosity of the South Australian Community.
"The Christmas Hamper program has been running for many years and we would not be able to do this, without the generous support we receive from our community. It truly is awe-inspiring.
"This generosity is not just felt by us at RDNS SA, it’s much more widespread. The support of our community is really felt by our clients. At such a special time of year, we choose to help our clients who are most in need by providing some relief to them with our nurses delivering hampers filled with some basic necessities, that have been donated or we have purchased from funds raised from our Summer Appeal.
"We were also fortunate to have again received the kind support of Drakes Supermarkets to purchase goods for the hampers at heavily discounted prices. Drakes have supported RDNS SA for 10 years and we are extremely grateful for their ongoing support.
"RDNS SA would also like to especially thank the many volunteers, employees from Beyond Bank Australia, who kindly gave up their time to assist our staff with packing the hampers," says Bronwyn.
The hampers, which were filled with items such as cereal, pasta, rice, canned fruit and vegetables and toiletries were delivered by RDNS SA nurses to clients throughout Adelaide just in time for Christmas.
RDNS SA raises much needed funds to support their services and equipment needs through their quarterly fundraising appeals. To find out more about RDNS SA’s fundraising appeals visit www.rdns.org.au or call 1300 364 264.
