Packing Hope, Sharing Love

Supertee With Police Chrsl0 Packing Hope, Sharing Love
Police joined in the packing process.

CHRG and its popular hospitality venue, Castle Hill RSL Club is well known, as being a hub for the community, but last Thursday morning (April 11th) it was transformed into a volunteer production line of community unity and compassion as it hosted the Supertee Kids Medical Garments Packing Event.

Volunteers included CHRG staff, Castle Hill RSL Sub-branch, and CHRG sub clubs who came together to support the cause.

Supertee was founded by Jason Sotiris in 2018 to make hospital stays and medical treatment easier for young children by providing a fun top that enabled easy access for medical staff.

The idea came to him while his then one-year-old daughter Angela was undergoing chemotherapy in hospital.

He was observing his daughter’s IV drips, heart monitors, and central lines when she woke suddenly and vomited due to the potency of her chemotherapy.

He wanted to create a garment that could be changed easily whether the patient was awake or asleep. Not only would this make life easier for nurses and parents, but it would also reduce stress for patients during difficult times.

On Thursday participants helped pack the special Supertee: Marvel Edition Tins with a Captain America or Captain Marvel Supertee, an activity booklet and stickers, character bookmark and Hero ID card, fellow Avengers secret message and a special note “From Your Biggest Fan”.

The event, which kicked off early in the morning, saw a flurry of activity as volunteers of all ages gathered to pack specially designed tins and contents. Amidst the shared laughter and purpose, volunteers diligently packed the garments for distribution
