The Examiner and City Mission's Mission Possible project is well on track to reach a five-figure total of food donations as the campaign reaches its halfway point. 

Three weeks into a six-week campaign, 4957 non-perishable items have been donated by Northern and North-West Tasmanians.  

On Friday, City Mission volunteers Paul Thomas and Lionel McInnes picked up three containers worth of items from the Trevallyn Newsagency. 

Mr Thomas said the generosity of Tasmanians would make a huge difference to those struggling to make ends meet through the winter.

“This is very helpful,” Mr Thomas said.

“Prior to this starting we were getting very low on (stocks).”
