Over the last 2 weeks the PaRBA team have been working with the Larrakia Nation and YMCA Palmerston Youth Space to assist our young people and their families through the provision of food, sanitary and activity items.
In the last 2 weeks PaRBA have delivered 356 meals, distributed 43 activity packs, provided 82 individual hand sanitiser usages and given out 115 pairs of gloves. We have also given away basketballs, shirts, sunglasses and hats and through this support a number of businesses. Larrakia Nation have worked alongside us for the entire 2 weeks, sharing their knowledge and delivering meals and providing support. Through this with have been able to jointly check in with our young people and their families.
None of this was possible without the continued support of the Northern Territory Government, Territory Families and the City of Palmerston We also acknowledge the generous support of Budget Car Rental Darwin who supplied a vehicle at a heavily reduced rate to support our work.
It t has been gratifying for our team to be able to continue to help the community and remember, kindness is free to give but priceless to receive.
