Shoppers now need to bring their own grocery bags, so why not buy one or 10 and help a wonderful cause?

The Tharawonga mobile child service is raising money by selling reusable grocery bags to provide more resources for its children.

The Goondiwindi Co-op has been quick to jump on-board.

Tharawonga is a mobile early childhood service which travels to Yetman, North Star, Yallaroi, Tulloona, Crooble and Gravesend.

It’s been a Godsend for parents.

The bags are printed with the communities they visit.

“The bags are proving to be a great gift idea for locals and those who have a connection to these rural areas,” Tori Woods from the  Tharawonga Mobile Resource Unit said.

“The Goondiwindi Co-op has kindly come on-board and is selling our fundraiser bags in the store. Paul Pettit, General Manager of Goondiwindi Co-Operative Society Ltd said they are more than happy to help local fundraising efforts.”

The bags are for sale for $3.50 each or 10 for $30.
