The MAYDAY Appeal is Geelong’s AppealMay 29, 2017
It’s the final week of the MAYDAY Appeal and to date an amazing $35,000 has been raised for the Give Where You Live Foundation to support our projects and grants.
Led our awesome MAYDAY Ambassadors the bay 93.9 Morning Crew’s Hayden and Milly, the MAYDAY Appeal is the Give Where You Live Foundation’s annual appeal, raising money from Geelong people for Geelong people at their time of need.
This morning we joined Hayden and Milly to discuss how the MAYDAY Appeal is tracking and brought along Bernadette McCartney from Bethany Community Support, discussing the impact your donations are making.
In 2016, Bethany Community Support were awarded an Innovation Grant to implement the ‘Court Support 4 Children’ program. This multiyear grant of $140,000 will allow Bethany Community Support to alter the experience for children attending court as a direct result of their experience with family violence. In addition, this program ensures that women who seek legal protection from family violence is supported.
“We recognised a need in our community and Give Where You Live were able to financially support this,” said Bernadette.
Although we’re drawing to the end of May there is still time to make your donation.
