Having the opportunity to help those in need, and hearing how much of an effect it can have on their lives, is why we here at Reaching are so dedicated to what we do.

"I just wanted to say a big thank you and tell you how much i appreciate the fantastic assistance I was able to get through you guys over the phone. My partner recently lost his job and has never been on Centrelink and wont get paid from them until next week so we are living off my payment and have been really struggling. I haven't really got much assistance from you before except when i was a single mother many years ago. You guys helped me to pay off some of my Telstra bill which we have never had a problem with until this recent bill and job loss. And I was absolutely stoked when they said Woolworths were able to deliver a family hamper to my door tomorrow. I really appreciate everything you guys do in helping people that are really actually doing it tough. Bless you and the wonderful caring lady I spoke to today."

"I am very grateful that this service was available in my ‘hour of need’ as my son is being returned to me and I won’t be able to get financial help for him for at least 3 weeks. I am on New Start, and it is barely enough money for me to support myself on my own."

− Karen from Sutherland

"We have two teenage boys with us at the moment and have really been struggling with food. This service is really helpful."

− Recipient from Jannali

"I liked it when it came in the morning. The food was fresh and I ate well. Thank you."

− Archie

"This service is such an excellent help. My daughter is in hospital so her children are staying with me at the moment. The extra financial strain is very hard at the moment. I am also in a wheel chair which makes it very difficult for me to access other food services for help."
