2019 WINNER QCF PHOTO CHALLENGE – PHILANTHROPY IN FOCUS
Title of Work: Giving is timeless
Name of Subject: Zoe
Submitted By: Lee Pinwell in support of Foodbank Queensland
Photo Essay: Come rain or shine the volunteers from Community Friends are there every Wednesday, unpacking and supplying fresh produce to the local community.
Zoe, affectionately known as Auntie by the regulars, knows their faces, their likes and dislikes and their stories. She makes sure those in need have enough fresh fruit and vegetables to last the week, is always up for a good gossip with the familiar faces and checks in with those who are new.
But volunteering is much more than helping those in need, each week Zoe is able to catch up with her community, her friends and neighbours. No act of kindness, no matter how small is ever wasted.
