Reverse Advent Project 2022
In early 2022 Glenn Carroll, Manager of the Horsham Sports & Community Club, instigated a community-wide project to support the needy in our community and district through the Reverse Advent Project. Individuals, businesses, schools and groups filled boxes of food from a specified list to be donated to us here at the Food Centre to be given to people in need. This was supported by The Weekly Advertiser and Radio Station 3WM. HSCC supplied the boxes and we supplied the list of non-perishable pantry staples that each box should have included. In total 379 were filled and delivered back to HSCC who then transported them to the Food Centre to be used straight away or to storage to await pick up by Centre staff. Perishable items (fruit, vegies, bread & meat etc) items were added to the boxes when given to clients.
