On behalf of our team at Southern Peninsula Food For All Inc I extend our sincere thanks to everyone in our community who supported our 2016 Christmas Appeal.
Cash donations totalled $39, 997.00. While this was well short of our target of $60,000 the overall assistance we received was boosted by a substantial quantity of toys, food and gifts which were a great help in our Christmas Giving program. Altogether we were able to provide hampers for 522 families and toys for 527 children and still have a modest reserve to commence our 2017 emergency food aid.
With many families and individual citizens under further pressure due to cutbacks in Centrelink payments and fewer hours of work than they would like we are again anticipating an increase in requests for assistance this year.
Thanks to the support we continue to receive from all our friends we hope and expect to be able to meet the challenge.
