The services provided by the Moreland Toy Library would not be possible without the ongoing support from the following people and organisations. For that we say thanks!

Lizzie Blandthorn MP, Victorian Member for Pascoe Vale
Lizzie grew up in Mooroolbark in the outer East of Melbourne and bought her first home in Brunswick West in 2007. She now lives in Pascoe Vale South. She has worked and volunteered across the Moreland area and understands the issues of importance to local people. Lizzie believes that the most vulnerable in our society – children, workers, refugees, the homeless, the elderly – should be supported by government and community so that they can live happy and fulfilling lives and can achieve their full potential.
Peter Khalil MP, Federal Member for Wills
Peter Khalil was elected to the seat of Wills at the 2016 federal election. His parents came to Australia from Egypt in 1970 and he grew up in an inner city housing commission. He benefited from the visionary policies of Labor Governments which gave him and millions of Australians access to education, no matter where they came from or where they started out. He studied Law and Arts and also did a Masters of International Law at university. Grateful for those opportunities he has spent his career making a contribution to Australian public life.
