KPFC Junior families will be supporting the Bushfire Disaster Appeal with $10 from every footy registration received during our recent McHappy Day registration day being directed to the appeal. Each year the junior group have supported the Ronald McDonald House and The School Project for homeless children charities, but with the recent events across Victoria this years donation will go towards the families most impacted by fires.
If you can help out in any way, please click on the link below, which is the official Bushfire disaster appeal page published by Emergency Victoria to help families.
Bushfire Disaster Appeal
A Bushfire Disaster Appeal has been established in support community members affected by the recent bushfires in East Gippsland and Hume.
Donations to the Bushfire Disaster Appeal can be made at any Bendigo Bank branch or online via www.communityenterprisefoundation.com.au/make-a-donation/bushfire-disaster-appeal/
All donations of $2 or more are tax deductible and donors will be provided with a tax receipt through the Foundation.
The appeal provides a formal channel for the public to donate money directly to affected communities and is designed to achieve positive outcomes for the community, by working directly with local recovery committees and structures to inform and drive the distribution of funds.
The appeal will be conducted by the Bendigo Bank’s charitable arm, Community Enterprise Foundation, and funds raised will be used in a range of locally identified charitable areas to provide relief and recovery in the fire affected areas.
