After more than 12 months looking for a home for their new project, Mullum Cares has been offered a large shed for the Mullum Library of Stuff, courtesy of Chincogan Real Estate.
The group is now busily searching for quality items that it will then offer on loan to families and not-for-profit groups.
They are starting with four key categories and are asking local residents to start peering the back of cupboards, boxes and garages to see what they can find to contribute.
1 – Tool library items in partnership with the Repair Cafe they are seeking a broad range of tools for home use.
2 – Screen-free family fun – quality board games, sporting equipment, musical instruments and camping gear.
3 – NFP fundraising assets – marquees, trestle tables, large pots for cooking, popcorn making machine, laminator, what else do you need??
4 – Waste-free catering equipment – minimum 250 bamboo dinner plates, side plates and bowls plus 500 12 oz cups for both hot/cold use – they are opting to collect cutlery from op shops rather than purchase these new.
The group is also looking for feedback and letters of support. The first grant is to Australian Ethical and it must be submitted by this Wednesday, June 6.
