Geelong Connected Communities
The Southern Star Group is proud to be a partner of Geelong Connected Communities. Together with other partners and sponsors, we have helped to deliver 11 grants to clubs, organisations and projects over the last month. We would like to highlight some of the fantastic work that GCC is doing.
Geelong Food Relief Centre
This organisation is a non-for-profit volunteer food bank operation, which serves those who require emergency food around Geelong.
Unfortunately, the demand for free food is rising in Geelong, and therefore the Centre has had to install a new cool room to store perishable items in their North Geelong warehouse. A $10,000 grant from GCC, which you helped make possible, will ensure the Centre can install this new cool room so it can better support those in need in our community.
A $1000 grant will help MND Victoria hold a live music concert in Geelong called ‘Rock Off MND: A Night To Make A Difference’ to raise funds and awareness of motor neuron disease.
Down Syndrome Victoria
This state-wide organisation which represents people with Down Syndrome and their families is hosting an event called ‘Step UP for Down Syndrome’. A $1000 grant that you made possible will help fund this walk and family day along the Geelong waterfront.
We are elated to be making a difference in the lives of so many across a wide range of causes.
