The Morisset ADRA Op Shop was the recipient of the Lake Mac Community Group of the Year award. Presented on March 11, at the 2023 Lake Mac Awards night, the award recognised the op shop volunteer group’s dedication to serve to the community.
Led by manager Dr Paul Rankin the volunteers have dedicated their time to receiving, cleaning, repairing, recycling, organising and selling donated goods. The op shop is a project of the Hillview Adventist church (Morisset) in partnership with ADRA Australia and the North New South Wales Conference.
Surplus funds from the op shop are supporting community projects, including providing for a low-cost counselling centre, funds for flooding victims in NNSW and local school scholarships.
