Share the Care
Not only at Christmas, but year round, there are families, single parents, students, refugees and people living rough who struggle to survive.
COVID-19 has put many more people under financial stress, with daily use non-perishable household products needed. These range from food to personal hygiene, washing and cleaning products, pet care, clothing and more.
Rotary’s Share The Care delivers donated products directly to charities working with these people around Adelaide and South Australia. Not all are homeless. Some families are struggling to keep a roof over their heads.
Rotary Adelaide Central - partnering with:-
- Anglicare SA
- Baptist Care SA
- The Salvation Army
How to Participate with Us
Whether you are interested in working with us by regularly donating non-perishable foods and household products, or prefer to make a financial pledge, your support is welcomed!
We invite you to have a look to pick up some ideas, but please also don’t hesitate to share your suggestions with us.
Rotary’s Share The Care specifically aims to collect non-perishable products. Different seasons result in greater demand for different items. A download from this page will offer you insights into items most in need by our partner charities.
Thank You for getting involved. Every donation collectively makes a big difference.
Shop and Share
You can support Rotary Adelaide Central’s Share The Care project by adding an extra product to your shopping cart each time you shop.
Supermarkets regularly run half price product specials, so if you are a canny shopper it need not cost very much at all to participate.
Pick up just one extra product per week and, over a year, you’ll contribute 52 products to help families and people in need. That will make a BIG difference, for adults and children alike.
You could also check your pantry for excess items to donate, before their Best Before dates expire!
Team and Corporate Care
If your workplace has a culture of giving, we’d welcome its involvement in our Share The Care project.
Consider setting up a grocery donation box in the lunchroom or, if you think your clients/customers would be supportive, in the business foyer.
In addition to information about the types of groceries most commonly needed, you’ll find labeling resources downloadable from this page.
Simply print and display, or email around what you need to encourage the involvement of your colleagues.
Party with a Passion
Special occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries and Christmas roll around so quickly. How often have you said “no presents” to friends and relatives? After all, who doesn’t have too many dust collectors!
Turn that thinking on its head and instead, say
“bring some groceries, I’m Partying with Passion”.
It is a simple way to magnify your efforts to help South Australians doing it tough.
For example, if you invite 30 people to a party and most take up the challenge to contribute one non-perishable grocery item, that’s a load of kindness to rekindle someone else’s hope for the future.
Don’t limit your thinking to adult functions, either.
Partying with a Passion is a simple way to teach children that not all families live in comfortable homes with well-stocked pantries and help them to discover the value of sharing.
This web page includes lists of the most commonly sought after grocery items and resources to help you get your family and friends involved.
Collected items can be dropped into:
Belperio Clark Lawyers
94 Sturt Street - Adelaide
If you are visiting one of Rotary Adelaide Central’s fortnightly, Thursday lunch meetings bring the groceries along with you to
The Terrace Hotel (formerly the SAGE)
208 South Terrace - Adelaide
