Thrive Together Fair


This winter, Shoalhaven City Council is hosting a donations drive for people in the community that are doing it tough.

From Monday 13 June to Friday 15 July 2022, we’re collecting essential items and creating dignity packs that will be distributed to attendees at the Thrive Together Fair this August.   

The Thrive Together Fair, on Wednesday 3 August 2022, is a free one-day event that connects people with services and support they might need. 

You can donate essential items such as non-perishable food, blankets, new socks, toiletries, sanitary products, nappies & laundry soap.  

You can deliver your donations to the following drop-off points:  

  • Nowra Administration Building 
  • Nowra Aquatic Park

Please note, used clothes, money, vouchers, fresh produce and perishables cannot be accepted at our drop-off locations.

Donations include grocery vouchers, clothes and other essential items and will go to people in our community who really need it.  

Shoalhaven City Council Deputy Mayor Liza Butler said, “The last two and a half years have been particularly hard for a lot of our community. I urge you to donate generously to support those who are really doing it tough”.  

“Essential items such as toiletries, laundry items, nappies and non-perishable food will go a long way to helping people get through this winter”, Clr Butler said. 

“If you know anyone that is doing it tough, for whatever reason, please let them know, or bring them along to the upcoming free Thrive Together Fair to connect with others, access support service, and have some fun”, Clr Butler said.
