Glebe Youth Service receives Chinese surgical masks

On 2nd July, the Glebe Youth Service (GYS) welcomed a representative from the Communist Party of Australia to speak briefly to the staff at the centre. We explained that we were from the CPA and that we were gifting the Glebe Youth Service with 500 masks given to us by the Communist Party of China. The co-coordinator of the service, Keiran Kevans, and one other staff member, Eloise, were accompanied by Beatrix and Bridie, two social work students from Western Sydney University on secondment to the GYS.

Eloise explained that while the COVID-19 restrictions are still in place, they are not able to offer the many services they usually provide for local young people so in the meantime they have become a food distributor to needy families, many of whom are Aboriginal. The masks will be used for volunteers when they distribute and for participants at the centre for activities to provide a healthy place for recreation for the young of Glebe. The co-coordinator expressed his deep gratitude to us for the masks.
