Thea Whitby and Violet Sear recently donated care packages to the St John of God Horizon House Young Mother and Baby Program, which provides accommodation and support to vulnerable young mothers aged 16 to 22.

Thea and Violet spent two months collecting a wide variety of items for the packages including toiletries, baby clothes and books.

Young Mother and Baby Program Support Coordinator Karen Griffin said it is very special to see two young girls thinking about others and finding a way to show their support.

“These care packages are greatly appreciated and will go a long way in helping the young women who are benefiting from the program” Karen said.
