Over the past few years in Townsville, we have seen the kindness of its people and local businesses come together in times of need.
Today, Arcare North Shore received such kindness during the preventative lockdown period.
In a surprise appearance, BIG W had dropped off a number of care packs for clients and team members at Arcare North Shore.
Clients and team members were all overwhelmed by their genuine kindness and generosity.
From pencils, hand creams and beauty products to wool and activity packs, there was something in there for everyone.
The beautiful baskets were certainly put together with love as they were loaded with Easter Eggs, providing a little sweet treat for clients just in time for the Easter weekend.
It was also a lovely surprise for our hardworking team members who remain happy and dedicated to the clients and to their role.
BIG W’s generosity highlights the community spirit here in Northern Queensland and demonstrates to us that we are supported and acknowledged by the local community.
