♻️ Containers for Change | Holiday Trading Hours ♻️A quick reminder for the Coral Bay and Shark Bay Communities that we will be in town this week! 📣The team will be on their way to Coral Bay tomorrow morning for the mobile pop up site to open at 11am at the Emergency Services Building! 🚛They'll also be visiting Shark Bay on Thursday! Please help us to make the refund process as quick as possible by: ▪️Separating your containers into material types (cans, clear plastic, coloured plastic, glass, etc). ▪️Remove all container lids (you can still bring the lids to be recycled, however if our team do not need to remove the lids on each of your containers, that makes our job a WHOLE lot quicker and easier).▪️Sign up for a Containers for Change Scheme ID, it's a great way to receive your refund straight into your bank account and is very easy to sign up for here: www.containersforchange.com.au ▪️Be kind to staff and volunteers who are doing their best to process your containers quickly and efficiently.For more information on the refund points, dates of pop ups and how to prepare your containers, head to the ABC Foundation Ltd website 🔗 www.abcau.com.au/containers-for-change #dontfeedthefill #OnCountryImpact #DontRubbishCounty #4ChangeWA #containersforchangeWA #WAContainerDepositScheme #coralbay ...

🥗 Food for the Mob® - A Year in Review 🥗Launched in July 2020, the primary purpose of Food for the Mob®, a food production and service business, is to create emergency relief and offer low-cost meals for people experiencing hardship during the COVID pandemic, along with creating local Aboriginal employment across the Midwest and Gascoyne Regions. 🎉 ABC Foundation uses existing infrastructure and resources, has sought support, worked with its community partners and has aligned with current service providers through a collaborative approach. This has resulted in providing employment to up to 15 Aboriginal people, coordinated over 35,000 meals and supported up to 1500 families across the Midwest and Gascoyne regions. 🙌We want to say thank you to our Major Supporter Lotterywest, and all of our Community Partners helping to bring this program to the Gascoyne and Midwest: Yulella Aboriginal Corporation, Mungullah Community Aboriginal Corporation, Bundiyarra Aboriginal Community Aboriginal Corporation, Mission Australia, MEEDAC,Ngala Midwest & Gascoyne, Stephen Michael Foundation, Carnarvon Community College, Chorus, Foodbank WA and SecondBite. ❤️#OnCountryImpact #FoodfortheMob #EmergencyRelief #Midwest #Gascoyne ...
