Campbelltown Catholic Club got behind Do Something Day on Wednesday 25 July with two community projects.
We encouraged staff and patrons to share the warmth this winter with our winter clothing drive. We asked for winter items new or in good condition to be donated to our collection points at Campbelltown Catholic Club, Campbelltown Golf Club and Aquafit Health Fitness Wellbeing. We received over 40 bags of clothing, blankets, scarves, gloves and more which were gifted to support people and families experiencing homelessness, crisis and disadvantage in the Macarthur region.
Our staff and management also rolled up their sleeves and put on their gardening gloves for a hands-on 'Do Something Day' when we planted $1,000 worth of eucalyptus trees at the local reserve of Pinaroo Bradbury. The trees will be for used for future harvest to feed injured Macarthur Koalas. A big thank you to the Campbelltown City Council Bushcare for helping organise the day. Our staff were also treated to a tour at the end of the day where they were lucky enough to spot a Koala in its habitat.
Our General Manager of People and Culture Jill Teeling said “The club was proud to get behind the do something day initiative. We wanted to do a couple of things, so all our staff could get involved.”
Do Something Day is an initiative between Your Local Club and News Local to Make a Difference, Make Someone Smile and Do Something.
