The community is being encouraged to help those less fortunate by donating food.

St Vincent de Paul’s Manjimup conference has been accepting food donations since early April and is encouraging that generosity to continue.

Conference member Tracy Lambert thanked the community for its support.

“We would still love the community to donate non-perishable foods,” she said.

“We have a donation trolley out front of the St Joseph’s Parish Centre.”

Mrs Lambert said even though the St Vinnies shop was closed, the welfare side was still up and running by phone.

“The conference is here to help people in need,” she said.

“There’s been a shift of people in need.”

The conference is working with St Joseph’s Parish, Seventh Day Adventist Church, Uniting Church in Pemberton and other community groups.

“We have very generous donations, with a lot coming from local businesses, including Alice’s Kitchen, who are making meals for people in need,” conference member Beverley South said.
