A Valentine’s donation

This year for Valentine’s Day, the Arcare Malvern East community gave a special gift to the wildlife of Victoria.

The community’s love for Australia’s wildlife fueled their desire to lend a hand to these creatures, after seeing the devastation that the recent bushfires left behind.

The Arcare Malvern East residence banded together to collect blankets and wraps to donate to a local wildlife organisation to help any injured or displaced animals.

The Malvern East community also asked anyone wearing red on Valentine’s Day to make a gold coin donation, with all of money going to Wildlife Victoria.

The community collected over 100 blankets and wraps and raised just over $40 for Wildlife Victoria. Lifestyle coordinator, Tina Spencer made a special trip to drop off the collected items in Hallam on Valentine’s Day.
