NEWS FLASH…

Thanks to every single donor, big or small, we have raised our $12,500 matched funding target for the 2019 FRRR Back to School Program.  What a beautiful act of kindness from so many.

With your help, 500 local students in need will receive a $50 Target voucher to help them start the 2019 school year with the resources they need.

If you’re still fundraising or have a collection tin, rest assured that all funds will still be directed towards the Program and additional voucher purchase.

2018 Testimonial

“One mother (who has recently moved to here – due to domestic violence) cried and cried. They did not have the basics eg lunchbox, back pack etc as it was all left behind. She was really appreciative. The student came and showed me his new items and was so excited and was just like the other students. Another family has several children – they were really appreciative as they could go and buy them new underwear and socks. The students had outgrown the ones they had. All families were thrilled and the vouchers have made such a difference in a big way – confidence, feeling that they belong and socially. It has also taken the pressure off some families to get items that they had been putting of due to a lack of finances”.  Welfare Officer
