Canning Vale resident giving back to help bushfire victims

Canning Vale resident Kay Burrows is providing support to those affected by the recent bushfires.

Earlier this year, volunteers and community groups across Perth rushed to help those affected by the Wooroloo bushfires.

Some kind-hearted people, including Canning Vale’s Kay Burrows, have continued to provide assistance over the past few months.

Ms Burrows, representing Animal Rescue Cooperative Western Australia, has been collecting a range of items, including food, medical supplies, and cleaning supplies, for many affected homeowners.

She and ARC WA have been providing support to a number of local wildlife carers looking after sick/injured native animals.

Speaking with Examiner Newspapers, Ms Burrows thanked the people of Gosnells and Canning for donating “a ton of items” to help those in need.

“The people of Canning Vale, Gosnells etc. have been absolutely amazing,” she said.

“So many people have been providing support to those impacted by the fires…it has been incredible.”

Refusing to give up, Ms Burrows and the other volunteers are still collecting and distributing donations.

ARC WA has 10 sites across the Perth metropolitan area, where people can drop off their donations at any time.
