Locals send ‘Pamper-Pack’ love to drought battlers

Share Canberra's trusted news:

A TRUCK loaded with 21 pallets of shoe-box-sized “Pamper Packs” left Fyshwick for Orange yesterday (December 6), its load destined for distribution to women who have been doing it tough during the drought.

The shipment was organised by Vicki and Teagan Day, Tony Innaimo Transport.
“Various businesses and individuals had sent out the plea from their offices, studios, premises and homes for shoe boxes to be packed with all sorts of goodies that would brighten the day for those whose lives were being blighted by the ongoing lack of rain,” says helper Ann Darbyshire, of Hughes.
“There were toiletries, yummy things to eat, gift vouchers and each shoe box was wrapped in newspapers or magazines from the area they were sent from so the recipients could feel the love from afar.”
