Lending a hand to People Supporting People

PEOPLE Supporting People are a well-known community organisation who provide support to those in need across the region and now Coles has offered a helping hand to the group, with team members volunteering to assist the free soup kitchen at Victoria Park Lake every Friday night.
Kicking off the generous support at the start of the month, Coles team members are volunteering to assist the kitchen in aid of the work that People Supporting People have been doing across the community for many years.
Coles Shepparton Vaughan Street Store Manager, Joe Tedesco said, “What we wanted to do was help support People Supporting People and Azem Elmaz’s mission in helping provide those in the community who are in need of support.
“This is something that the team at Coles really wanted to do; to help those in need.
“Our team members volunteer their time to give back to the community.
“It’s a passion for us and really rewarding. It’s good to be amongst different surroundings and supporting the community.
“We will be assisting the kitchen at the barbecues near the skate park at the lake every Friday.”
