PCYC Muswellbrook and Mangoola Open Cut provide relief to local families

From bushfires to pandemics, the Muswellbrook PCYC continues to support those impacted by disaster under the steady hand of Manager De-anne Douglas.

PCYC Muswellbrook is providing support to those directly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic by supplying much needed relief hampers to families who have lost their jobs. The PCYC has linked with Upper Hunter Community Services for referrals for these families.

The workforce of Mangoola Open Cut have also weighed in with a generous donation of $2,000.

Operations Manager Nick Slater said “it is a great gesture from the business and all employees at Mangoola to assist those less fortunate than ourselves as we continue to operate under extremely tight and responsible pandemic protocols. These controls allow us to continue to provide business and community capability in extremely tough economic times for a great many people”.

De-anne said the financial support provided by Mangoola could not have come at a more critical time.

“We knew we needed to support these families but were not sure how we could make this a reality financially” she said.

“The phone call from Mangoola Open Cut was a blessing and we are so grateful that they continually support this community and believe in the work we do. We cannot thank them enough and know the families who benefit from this donation will be as grateful as we are.”

Mr Slater said that the operation is looking at other ways the business and workforce can support the effort in the broader Upper Hunter community.
