Wanderers deliver care packages to vulnerable members

Western Sydney Wanderers FC in conjunction with partners Herbalife Nutrition, Vegeta and Choice Pharmacy will be delivering care packs to the club’s most vulnerable members in Western Sydney this week.

As part of the Wanderers’ ongoing commitment to the community, especially in light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, the Red & Black have been working closely with club partners to create care packs to support the club’s elderly and vulnerable members. 

The care packs include important nutritional supplements from Herbalife Nutrition, pre-packaged meals from Vegeta as well as sanitiser, medical supplies, and home comforts from Choice Pharmacy.

Western Sydney Wanderers CEO John Tsatsimas said the joint effort of the club’s partners to help the Western Sydney community re-affirms the ongoing collaboration from all sectors of the club.

“The Western Sydney Wanderers are more than just a football club and it’s important during these times that we step up and support the most vulnerable members of our community,” said Tsatsimas. 

“I would like to thank our generous partners Herbalife Nutrition, Vegeta and Choice Pharmacy for coming together to help us support the Western Sydney community.”
