HELP LOCAL COMMUNITY GROUPS AFFECTED BY BUSHFIRES
Our team here at StreetSmart are deeply distressed by the bush fire emergency and want to help in any way we can. We have been working with our community partners to find out who has been either directly or indirectly affected by the bushfires.
We have continued to monitor the situation and talk to those on the ground to gain a better understanding of the urgent and vital needs of our community partners in affected areas. With a crisis of this scale, many people need immediate support putting additional demands on already stretched services.
That’s why this month your StreetFunder donations will immediately support three small, local, organisations helping people impacted by the fires:
- The Hut Community Centre in The Adelaide Hills SA
- Bairnsdale Neighbourhood House in VIC
- Social Justice Advocates – Bega Valley in NSW
We wish to acknowledge the amazing work being done across our communities by NGO’s, fire services and first responders on the front line. Our thoughts are with everyone impacted and in particular the many people who were already very vulnerable prior to this emergency. We will continue to listen to our regional community partners over the coming months understanding that recovery can take many years.
