Supporting Community Members in Time of Crisis
Keeping an open door for our most vulnerable
As we all navigate our way through the Coronavirus crisis; many organisations like ours are closing their doors to the clients, either due to lack of volunteers to operate the services, or moving to a remote service via phone and email.
We are keeping our doors open; as many of the most vulnerable within our community do not have access to phones, or email, or computers and printers. They will be left behind through this crisis. Many of the emergency plans and closures already in place leave them behind.
DVCS programs that will be funded
Christmas time can be a particularly stressful for families in our community.
The Diamond Valley Gift Appeal will provide toy parcels and/or gift cards for children aged 0 to 16 years, and bring some much needed relief at Christmas time.
Donate now to help us raise funds to purchase toys to help families who are struggling in the Nillumbik area.
Every year for over 20 years, in partnership with local community groups the Banyule Children’s Gift Appeal has provided quality new gifts, toys and vouchers to local children and families experiencing financial hardship.
