Morris House news


Contributed by Ann Husband

AS most people know, Morris House Neighbourhood Centre is staffed by volunteers – no paid workers; and in the current situation (COVID, floods etc) this has meant that our volunteers have been kept busy assisting those in need in the community.

All our usual services are available: non-perishable food donated by Anglican Food Bank and Seventh Day Adventist Church, as well as some ‘perishable’ food provided by Anglican Food Bank; as well as Go-Cards, Telstra phone vouchers and hygiene products.

We also have free internet and computer use, printing and copying for a small fee, and a JP service each Wednesday.

ADRA (Adventist Development and Relief Agency) have donated funds to assist those who have been impacted by the recent storms and floods. If you are experiencing hardship due to the effects of the storms / floods, we have vouchers and a limited number of fuel vouchers. As these are limited, they will only be issued to those in urgent need.

A NILS’s (No Interest Loans Scheme) officer is available each Friday.

Call us, or call in and see us and have a cup of coffee and a chat with our friendly staff. Everyone welcome.

Please note that we are changing  our open times commencing May 30, 2022. From this date we will be open 9am-2pm Monday to Friday. All our services, including emergency relief are available every day. No appointment necessary. Contact us: phone – 5494 1255. Email: morrishouse@landsborough.com or go to our Facebook page.
