The Huddle, with donations from Aqium this week, donated hand sanitiser to various groups in the local area.

Staff from The Huddle transported a whopping 504 Aqium hand sanitiser bottles to nine locations in the North Melbourne, Ascot Vale and Kensington areas this week. 

The drop-offs began in North Melbourne, donating to local business Pioneer Pizza, which is run by a family who are regularly involved in programs run by The Huddle. The donation will assist with keeping their business COVID-safe for staff and customers.

Up next was Our Community, The Centre, Young Australian People and North Melbourne Language and Learning. Shortly afterwards, The Huddle dropped off hand sanitiser bottles to local schools, River Nile and St Joseph’s College, which are just moments away from one another.

Only a few minutes’ drive away, more boxes of Aqium hand sanitiser were delivered to Wingate Avenue Community Centre in Ascot Vale and The Venny in Kensington. Both locations are close by to two of our Huddle Up Junior programs.

“A big thank you to The Huddle and Aqium for the generous donation of hand sanitiser. During this vulnerable period of re-opening after lockdown, it is of great comfort to us and our families to have hand sanitizer to pass on and use.” said Catherine Hude, Operations Manager at The Venny.

Wingate Avenue Community Centre, St Joseph’s and River Nile School will use these hand sanitiser bottles in food hampers they create regularly, for families and students respectively. 

A few more sanitiser bottles were kept aside to be distributed at The Huddle’s Chirnside Park and Arden Street locations, to keep our participants, staff and volunteers COVID safe.
