The Rapid Relief Team (RRT) recently brought some Christmas Cheer to our hardworking health workers in Western Australia.
The Brethren charity donated 3,000 Comfort Snack Packs to 35 hubs under the Child and Adolescent Health Service, including the Perth Children’s Hospital.
RRT volunteers set out to bring joy through the Comfort Snack Packs which contain a variety of tasty goodies, including nutrition bars, fruit cups, cheese and crackers, and some sweets.
“The Comfort Snack Packs are a small token of our appreciation, and we hope it gives them the energy boost they need to keep volunteering their time,” local RRT team leader, Alex said.
“Christmas is just around the corner, so we also threw in a candy cane to bring some festive cheer to the packs.”
“We’d also like to thank all the healthcare workers who have kept us safe during this pandemic – your courage and commitment to helping your patients is admirable.
“You have been the unsung heroes of this pandemic.”
RRT supports hundreds of flood, fire and drought rescue efforts each year, and assists the healthcare system through donating Food Boxes and other supplies where required.
The Plymouth Brethren Christian Church established RRT in 2013 to express its principles of care and compassion. It is staffed by Church volunteers who provide catering services at a range of charitable events and emergencies.
