As a leading provider of homelessness support in Northern NSW, Momentum Collective revealed its Kindness Wall outside of the Casino Neighbourhood Centre earlier in the morning
The launch welcomed the presence of Richmond Valley’s Mayor Robert Mustow, Councillor Patrick Deegan and over 50 Casino residents.
The famous Kindness Wall was first launched outside Momentum Collective’s Tweed Heads Head Office during earlier this year. After receiving positive feedback from community members, the for-purpose organisation decided to take this community initiative to Casino just ahead of the festive season.
The meaningful project will allow residents and business owners to support those in need and give back to the community.
Momentum Collective’s Service Manager of Community and Clients Services, Fiona Miller, supports this initiative after witnessing the effects of the recent pandemic and the flooding events earlier this year.
“Our team has seen a substantial need for a community initiative like the Kindness Wall in our Casino community which is available 24/7. With the perfect motto, “Leave one if you can. Take one if you need”, the wall provides an opportunity for people who can to help and a great way for people in need to have some essential items.”
As the holiday season approaches, local residents increasingly require extra support for essential items such as food and summer clothing. Donated goods will provide relief and directly impact the community’s less fortunate members.
“We are asking local business owners and residents to support this initiative and help people in need.” – Service Manager of Community & Client Services
The Kindness Wall is located at Momentum Collective’s Casino Neighbourhood Centre
at 138 Canterbury Street, Casino, and is available 24/7.
