THEY say a little kindness goes along way and that’s exactly what Target Parkes have exhibited with a generous donation to Currajong Disability Services recently.
Kristy Harvey – Parkes Manager of Target was on hand to present the pillows and bedding to Currajong Direct Care Team Leader Indigo Kriedemann in what is a real boost for CDS.
“The pillows are essential for us as we attract more clients and update our resources at our many residences,” said Indigo.
“Target have long been proud supporters of Currajong.
“We are very pleased with the donation and look forward to working with them in the future.”
The latest donation comes on the back of a success Day On The Green at Railway Parkes Bowling Club, numerous gernous gestures from the Parkes community and business sector and more recently, a huge cheque from Parkes Services Club for $5000 to assist with transport needs.
Kristy Harvey was more than happy to present the stock from Target.
“We received excess bedding stock not in range and HQ asked me to donate to a local organisation,” she said.
“I approached Sharnie Morris from Currajong and said – what about Currajong? Do they want more pillows for group homes?
“She said CDS would gladly take the excess bedding stock,” said Kristy.
“And Target Parkes are pleased to donate to such a wonderful organisation as Currajong is a vital member of our community and we knew the stock would be put to good use in the many residences CDS has around Parkes.”
This continues the strong relationship between Target and CDS as Target has previously provided work experience ops for CDS clients including Thomas Davis.
“We have always had a strong bond with Currajong and we look forward to it continuing well into the future,” Kristy said.
We do too.
