It’s been a very torrid time for our neighbours in East Gippsland over the last few weeks and we know many of you would like to help. We’ve looked into some of the ways we can offer immediate support and we have chosen to raise funds for the Gippsland Emergency Relief Fund (GERF).
This registered charity has been around for decades, is run by some incredible, experienced, local volunteers and 100% of the funds collected will go to affected communities to provide immediate financial aid.
Right now, assisting people in need via monetary donations is super powerful. All contributions are appreciated, no matter the size. You can make a donation directly by:
? Hitting the “Donate” button on the pinned post on our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/CaseyCardiniaLibraries/
? Going to the GERF website: https://www.gerf.org.au/donate/
? All funds collected at our branch donation tap points for the months of January or February will go to GERF. If you don’t want to use your cards, we can also accept cash donations over the counter.
We will never forget the support provided by our neighbours and wider community last year through the Bunyip fires so we figure right now would be a good time to reciprocate
Watch this space for a couple of other support initiatives we’ve got in the pipeline. Announcements coming soon!
