Providing warmth this winter to people in need

2 Aug 2017

Mercy Community Services, CatholicCare Social Services, and Toowoomba Refugee and Migrant Support recently partnered with Multicultural Development Australia (MDA Ltd) for MDA’s 'Toowoomba Coat Rack' campaign.

Mercy Community Services was one of the agencies collecting coats for this initiative that supported vulnerable people who may not have enough clothing to keep warm or be able to heat their homes during winter. From 10-21 July, people in the community could give or receive a coat from the Toowoomba Regional Library.

Partnering with MDA for this initiative is one example of our organisation’s mission to support and inspire people in need to live healthy, connected lives within inclusive communities.
