COVID Relief Report Mandurah

Recently we contributed $29,800 to PEACH (Personnel Employed at Alcoa Charity Help) and Charitable organisations in Mandurah to help provide short term relief for those affected by COVID-19. Here are some of the recipients our members can be proud to support in a time of need.

Halo

HALO has approx. 1500 beneficiaries registered - some get food hampers delivered some get hampers and meals from their gate.  The increase in help required and COVID contact restrictions have resulted in the use of more packaging.  Packaging products they continually use – bags for hampers, take away containers, polystyrene cups for hot drinks. 

Safe Women Safe Family

Coles vouchers to allow them to purchase food to deliver hampers to isolated families in the local area.  Vouchers also assist in buying fuel for their volunteer deliveries. 

Pinjarra Community Kitchen

150 x hampers from Foodbank, 10 x sleeping bags, $500 Coles for food and fuel. 

Daily Bread R Us

Food Hampers to those in financial crisis whilst providing counselling, mentoring, and support services.
