Volunteers Needed

Food collection volunteers needed

As you may be aware, our Centres have been inundated with requests from vulnerable families throughout the pandemic - the need for essentials such as food, nappies, clothing etc. has drastically increased. To assist with this, we have been lucky to receive donations from a number of different organisations.

Staff at our Penrith Centre are currently collecting goods from two local supermarkets, four mornings per week! To help free up some of their time and get back to working directly with families in need, we are calling on reliable volunteers in the local area who can assist with these collections and delivery back to the Centre nearby.


Collection details:

  • ALDI Cranebrook

    80-89 Borrowdale Way, Cranebrook at the back dock
    Collect 9AM on Mon, Tues, Wed
  • SecondBite Coles Penrith

    Woodriff St Penrith at loading dock
    Collect 10:30AM on Mon, Tues, Wed and Thurs


Volunteers will need to have a WWCC, police check and driver’s licence. Barnardos will provide a car for transporting collected goods.

Please email Annalise Wild at awild@barnardos.org.au if you are available to help out on a regular, ongoing basis.
