** A big Thank You!**
We were absolutely thrilled to receive a call last week to tell us we had won a grant from the Bank of Melbourne Neighborhood fund. This is such an incredible gift and will enable us to buy the van we so desperately need to continue our outreach work and deliver more Period Packs to those in need. Up until now we've been using our own cars to get everything out, pick up donations and deliver orders to the agencies we support.
The grant will also enable us to create our digital presentation for our Homelessness Awareness Sessions to further our cause in increasing public awareness to support those experiencing homelessness.
We'd like to send a heartfelt thank you to Matt from Prism Studios for his amazing video work of our journey on the streets. Andrew and Hayley from Launch Housing for speaking so highly of our services and how we've assisted their clients. Ryan and Kunti from Pay A Sack Forward - PASF for helping us during our street walks and supporting our work. Hai and the team at OneLedger for their incredible assistance with our accounts, helping us to achieve our goals, and to our incredible team of volunteers who work tirelessly behind the scenes. Thank you! We couldn't do any of this without you all.
And of course to each and every one of you who have supported us along the way, chipping in to help us achieve our goal of assisting those who need it most, and adding your support to all we do. None of this would be possible without all of you.
We'll have our van early in the new year. Now to decide what we'll name her?
