A message from the Women’s Committee regarding charities
We have recently received notification from the Ardoch Foundation, which had previously supported one of our chosen charities, the Mahogany Rise Primary School Breakfast Club, that they have changed the focus of their support. Their funds will now go towards improving educational outcomes for children in disadvantaged communities.
The Breakfast Club at Mahogany Rise, which provides free breakfast every school day for 30 to 40 children, is now supported by Foodbank Victoria, an independent, not for profit, organization.
As you would be aware, at the Closing Day and Christmas Lunch in December 2018, our women members generously gave a little over $4,000.00 towards our two charities. The other is Southern Autistic School.
As some of you gave donations specifically to Ardoch that day, and received receipts for those donations, we will be splitting the money as follows: – Southern Autistic School – $2,000.00, Ardoch Foundation – $1,000.00 and Mahogany Rise P. S. Breakfast Club – $1,000.00.
From now on our donations will go equally to Southern Autistic School and Mahogany Rise P.S. Breakfast Club.
Many thanks for your support.
