Victoria Region West Blessing Bag Service Activity

In honour of Easwaramma this year, the Ladies wing of Victoria Region West along with the Regional Team planned and conducted a service activity to spread Swami’s love to the wider community. The service could not happen in the month of May, as was initially planned due to Covid restrictions. However, with the easing of restrictions in Victoria, the event took place on Saturday 26 June 2021.

The service activity undertaken was the donation of toiletry bags to those in need in the community. A total of 18 Toiletry Bags were distributed, 14 of which were donated to Blessing Bags Organisation and 4 bags were donated to Missionary of Charity in Fitzroy. Each toiletry bag was composed of the following items:

  • Shampoo/Conditioner
  • Soap
  • Face/Body Lotion
  • Powder
  • Sanitary Pads
  • Face towel
  • Comb
  • Deodorants
  • Tooth paste/brush

The Blessing Bags Organisation was highly appreciative of the service initiative and sent an e-mail SSSIO Victoria Region West thanking them for their generous effort. Due to the success of this service activity Victoria Region West are currently liaising with Blessing Bags Organisation to find another opportunity to provide this service.
