Late October, some of the PEXA On-Boarding team had the opportunity to volunteer with the St Kilda Mum’s. We cleaned donated prams, car seats and high chairs, sorted through bags of (the cutest) clothes; and packed all things baby into amazing packs to gift to children and parents experiencing hardship. During a tour of the warehouses, it was heart-warming to see the generosity of donations provided by the local community and evident how hard the volunteers work to create an efficient system to sort through it all and make each item that goes back out through their doors as good as new. Some items that we had cleaned and put together were sent to their new homes before we had left for the day! We all had a lot of fun throughout the day and gained a great appreciation for the work that the volunteers on the floor do every day. We all left with warm hearts and very sore feet! If you are at all interested in getting involved with the St Kilda Mums, please see their website for information about holding a fundraiser, donating goods in-kind or baby things, or you if would like to volunteer.
