Angels looking for a home

WARMTH: Wagga Angels for the Forgotten manager Andrea Howard. The charity, founded in Wagga, is looking for a new home. Picture: Les SmithA charity that helps the homeless, among others, has itself fallen on hard times.

Angels for the Forgotten was started in Wagga by Melina Skidmore in 2010 and has helped scores of families in need.

She has moved to Goulburn for family reasons, but is still heavily involved in the Wagga branch, and said the charity is needed more than ever.

“The need in Wagga is extremely high,” Ms Skidmore said.

“The way the economy is and factors such as the ice epidemic (all contribute).”

Wagga manager Andrea Howard said the local branch had been homeless for about six months.

“We’re looking for a new place where we can have a food bank and an op shop,” Ms Howard said, adding the place where they were previously based was insufficient for the growing needs of the charity.

“At the moment we’re still offering crisis packs, which contain essential items and clothing.”

The group has organised a trivia nightto help raise money to pay for a new home.

The theme of the night is angels and demons and will be held at the Wagga RSL club on Friday, July 29, from 6.30pm.

The charity also has a gofundme page if anyone would like to help out.
