How Can You Help ?

Each year the Keilor Park Football Club community provide support for those less fortunate.   Last year we supported families of ill children through Ronald McDonald House Charities and this year we are proud to support the Melbourne Homeless Collective Charity and the support they provide children through their ‘The School Project’ initiative.

THE SCHOOL PROJECT

A great initiative setup by the Melbourne Homeless Collective is to provide NEW school supplies for children in crisis accommodation and in foster care who have fled family violence and living with no stable accommodation.

This year the charity made over 700 school bags for kids living in foster care and crisis accommodation and they still need to make up more.   They are in desperate need of new donations to help get kids ready for the 2018 school year.

Having the right gear means kids don’t miss out on schoolwork or homework, they feel more included and are less likely to miss days off school.

So when you’re stocking up for the school year or filling out the book lists, please consider adding an extra couple of pens or pencils to the shopping list. It means the world of difference to kids less fortunate. 

HOW CAN WE HELP?

Please hand any donations from sharpeners to back packs and everything in between (pens, pencils, lunch boxes etc…) directly to Peter or Teresa anytime, either at the club during training times or at our home. We’ll make sure they get to the charity.

Any questions or assistance, please contact – Peter McGrady – 0414 444 205 – EMAIL

The charity does have a policy of only accepting NEW items for children (calculators excepted), as the children they support are already in such vulnerable positions, their self-esteem is usually very low and receiving someone’s second hand or used items can sometimes make them feel worse.

Thank you all for helping Victoria’s most vulnerable kids.

Club Treasurer Position Vacant

With the sad passing of our 2017 Club Treasurer, we are again looking for someone interested in running the club accounts (Senior & Junior).   They need to be experienced with MYOB and have some financial administrative background.      The role primarily involves paying bills, preparing monthly financial reports and annual budgets.

After a few years of financial struggles, our finances are in a solid state again.   We’ve paid off our debt and now have all our financials structured and managed within the MYOB financial management system.  For those that know the MYOB Financial System, it produces all the reports, budgets & tax statements you need, as well as recording all payments and income received.   The system is accessible from a home computer or a club laptop dedicated to the Treasurer position.

The role is open to anyone interested from all levels of the club.   No need for a football background, as this will be provided by the Club Committee & Football Department, but the role does provides incredible insight into how Football Leagues and Sporting clubs operate.

The Clubs Sponsorship Manager is currently doing the role until Christmas, but cannot do both roles into the new year.     But he will be available to induct initially and continue to assist the NEW treasurer throughout the year, as will the entire Club Committee.   The role requires no additional attendance to games or functions than what you would already attend, other than a monthly committee meeting.

Anyone interested please let me know.
