Okines Community House May 2020

Despite the onset of Covid-19,  Okines is continuing to provide much needed essential services to the Southern Beaches community.  Services such as food assistance, No Interest Loans (NILS)  and access to computers and printing facilities have become a crucial part of our day to day activities.  Our 20th celebrations have been put on hold for the time being however, staff have been busy finding ways to share the history of the organisation through Facebook and the Okines Community House Newsletter.  The Okines Food Co-op and Community Garden are operating in new and interesting ways during this time with access to healthy food a major focus of operations.

The Okines Newsletter for Term Two 2020 is now available packed full of information about what has been happening around the house we hope you enjoy the read.
