A group dubbed “the masked rangers” have been quietly spreading acts of kindness throughout Canterbury-Bankstown.
And now, this dedicated group has been unmasked in the latest online edition of Keep Connected.
This local not-for-profit organisation, known as the Panania Free Rangers, delivered several Kindness Boxes to families who were struggling during lockdown.
Panania Free Rangers founder Jacquie Dredge said the boxes were donated by members of the community and delivered by volunteers.
“The kindness boxes have a little message written by local children saying ‘You’ve been nominated for a kindness box’,” Ms Dredge said.
“They might say ‘thank you for being a beautiful neighbour’ or ‘you’re a beautiful mum’.
“They bring a lot of joy to people who are struggling.”
A City of Canterbury Bankstown spokesperson said it was organisations like the Panania Free Rangers and Oz Harvest who lent a helping hand and lifted the spirit of everyone in our City.
“We want everyone to know about the selfless work of these local heroes,” said the spokesperson.
“It was a time when many people were doing it tough and those little things make a real difference to someone’s day.”
