Time to get tough when times are tough

Australia has been hit by the worst floods in over 100 years and as I drive around Sydney I am glued to the radio listening to the updates as people are loosing their homes, and farms. A friend of mine, Robyn decided that there was something to be done so she organised for me to go and stack shelves at FOODBANK NSW. My mum and I showed up this morning and helped unpack and stack food. We worked along side two other volunteers who have been showing up every Friday for the last 10 years. Ron and Betty are both well into their 70's and know where every item belonged on the shelves. They soon had us unpacking and stacking like pros.
