Dandenong Market plays a vital role in the community and remains open to customers.
The issues around COVID-19 virus have made it more difficult for the community’s most vulnerable to complete daily activities such as visiting the Market to shop for fresh produce.
The elderly, disabled and those not mobile enough to get out may already feel isolated.
Dandenong Market is encouraging everyone to “be kind” by doing random acts of kindness – or sharing what they’ve seen. It is leading by example by providing 50 bags full of fresh fruit and vegetables to the most vulnerable in our community.
When we have no control over what is happening around us and we need to challenge ourselves to control how we react.
Shopping on behalf of an elderly neighbour, freezing an extra meal for family or friends who are unwell or even buying a good book for someone who is in isolation are all examples of how people can give back to their community.
Do you know any health care professionals working extra hours? Say thank you by dropping off some chocolates or flowers to their front door.
It is important, now more than ever, to lend a helping hand to members of the community who are struggling. We want to highlight and celebrate those in the community who are doing their bit to help those most at risk or simply to say thank you to others.
