BOX OF LOVE: Newy Burger Co giving some kindness in a crisis

Novocastrian eatery Newy Burger Co might be doing it tough at the moment, but that’s not going to stop staff from giving something back.

The popular Hunter Street burger joint has launched a brilliant Kindness Boxes initiative aimed at making sure the most vulnerable in our community are sorted when it comes to the essentials.

Taking to Facebook this week to announce the initiative, management revealed that the Kindness Boxes would contain staples like bread, milk, and soup as well as some baked goods from The Letter Q and hand sanitiser from Earp Distilling Co.

“After all the support we have been given we are upping ours,” the announcement post read.

“These kindness boxes are available for people that are in need to take or for you to take to people that you know that would appreciate.

Kindness boxes are ready to roll!❤️After all the support we have been given we are upping ours! These kindness boxes…

“No cost, no questions and no need to explain just a little more kindness in this madness to repay the amazing support.”

The post also gave a shout-out to the surgeons in training from Hunter New England Health whose generous group donation meant that a ‘heap’ of boxes were ready to roll.

While the post added that the contents of the Kindness Boxes may vary depending on product availability, staff will endeavour to have soup and bread available.

The Kindness Boxes are available for pick-up only at 459 Hunter Street, Newcastle.

Newy Burger Co is open from 12pm to 8pm Tuesday to Sunday for takeaway and delivery.
