Oaklands’ big blanket donation
Japara Oaklands donated an amazing 111 quilts and blankets to The Salvation Army’s Marion Outreach Centre. Jean, one of our wonderful Oaklands residents joined staff members Maria, Jemma and Stephanie to deliver the blankets. At 100-years old, Joan helped carry in the mountain of quilts, doing multiple trips – she really is amazing! Oakland’s Home Manager Stephanie said that reaching out and connecting with the local community was a fantastic and heart-warming experience. The donated quilts and blankets will be used as part of the Salvation Army’s outreach program and were gladly received.
