None of the ladies had previous experience with sewing machines, but exceeded their own expectations cutting, stitching and decorating bags that - thanks to the staff at Cobar Preschool - will soon be filled with chocolate eggs ready for the kids.

MPREC is proud to support jobseekers give back to their community, providing the materials and training for activities like this, through hosting Work for the Dole activities.
Work for the Dole is an Australian Government initiative which helps both jobseekers and the wider community. The program places jobseekers in activities where they can gain confidence and job skills, while giving back - in chocolate in this case!
In Cobar, the ‘Community Kits’ program has been designed as a Work for the Dole activity, where our eligible jobseeking ladies are regularly involved in group activities, creating gifts and other items needed by the community.
Proudly supported/funded by the Australian Government.
