In a year where there have been many tough times and concerns where resilience and compassion are tested, The Glennie School Parents and Friends Association President Mark Ryan and his family have recently supported Drought Angels.

Helping organisations such as Drought Angels to forge ahead with their commending work in the rural sector, Mark ventured to their headquarters in Chinchilla. He presented them with a $3366 donation in support of their operations on behalf of The Glennie School Association.

Drought Angels co-founder Natasha Johnston, a previous Glennie student, and her husband Steele walked Mark and his family through the headquarters and outlined how the process works from receiving donations to dispatching food hampers and care packs. “They offer financial assistance and personalised support to thousands of farming families across Australia. The mechanics behind the gift shop is very impressive and worth a look if you are in the area,” Mr Ryan said.

Drought Angels provides a unique service and has become a well-known organisation within the rural sector and among valued sponsors. Although it is constructive to give the necessary material items, the experience to reach out and listen to those struggling is also very beneficial.
