It was Halloween with a difference this year for North Nowra Gumnut Guides.
Part of the Guide promise is to serve their community and Australia. This year the Gumnuts dropped notes to local residents letterboxes asking if they would like to help and support their cause, and if so to leave an item of food at their letterbox to be collected for the Shoalhaven Safe Shelter in Nowra.
Residents were very generous with their support, leaving food items at their letterboxes for the excited young girls to collect. Others donated bags full of goodies.
The girls were able to experience and see the pleasure of the giving while also having fun collecting for people in need.
The Gumnut Guides thanked everyone for participating and for their generosity. Our thanks to our locals for participating and for their generosity. The donations will soon be delivered to the Safe Shelter.
