For a $2 donation over the next two weeks, supermarket-shoppers can help provide respite and end-of-life care for children in need.
Coles supermarkets in Casey will sell $2 donation cards to help the state’s children’s hospice Very Special Kids until 19 September.
The charity helps more than 900 families across Victoria each year.
A sum of $10 will cover daily meals for a child at the hospice, $100 to give a brother or sister a fun day out at Bereaved Sibling Day.
Very Special Kids chief executive Michael Wasley said many families relied on the charity for practical and emotional support.
“We are extremely thankful for the generous support from local residents to help us raise important funds.”
Coles state general manager Michael McKenzie said: “Very Special Kids do an amazing job to help families and children facing very difficult circumstances.”
