Aged care facility gives back to community with pre-demolition donations

Charities are set to benefit from a Warwick aged care facility’s decision to give away its furniture as it gives back to the community, ahead of its demolition.

Bethanie’s Warwick Aged Care Home is contributing to organisations supporting the less fortunate, donating a range of items that have been used in the facility.

The not-for-profit aged care and retirement living provider has faced questions of what to do with items inside the property including bins, beds, curtains, instruments, chairs, crockery and dishwashers.

It has given away the items to local and overseas charities to put them to good use, including Pregnancy Problem House, Water for Africa, Grandparents Rearing Grandchildren along with churches.

It came as the renovation and refurbishment continues for the existing Bethanie Warwick Retirement Village.

Bethanie Mission Manager David Van Leen said it was part of its goal to contribute to the well being of the community.

“Bethanie is always looking for ways to give back to the community,” Mr Van Leen said.

“It has been a joy to be able to pass on all this gear to such a variety of charity groups.”

“At times like these, support of local and international charities is needed more than ever.”
