Sharing is caring!

We hope you are safe and well. The health crisis of COVID-19 has brought many changes to how we live. Many businesses and livelihoods have felt the devastating impact of the pandemic and may continue to do so in the coming months.

As a response to the effects of COVID-19 in our region, we have partnered with a new community initiative, the Northern Rivers Pantry Project. Their mission is to spread kindness and compassion to ensure we look after the wellbeing of our neighbours during the pandemic.

The Northern Rivers Pantry Project is looking to the community to donate items to create Pantry Packs and Arts and Crafts Mindfulness Packs for those in need during this challenging period. Attached is a list of donation items sought.


Please deliver your donations to Byron YAC, 1 Gilmore Crescent, Bryon Bay between 8 – 11:30am, Monday – Friday. To ensure everyone’s health and safety, please maintain social distancing of 2 metres and that all items donated are unopened and unused.

Delivery Volunteers Needed! They are also looking for volunteers to deliver the packs to the front door of those in need. If you’re in a position to help, please contact Tahlia (contact details below).
