Three steps forward!
The last month has seen us make three encouraging steps.
1. Donations are now tax deductible
Donations are needed to support refugees in material ways, such as help with daily necessities, furniture, school expenses or assistance with rent.
Your donation of $2 or more is tax deductible. You can donate here.
(SSRC is a Deductible Gift Recipient endorsed by the Australian Taxation Office and the Australian Charities and Not-for-Profit Commission.)
2. Supporting our first family
We have begun supporting our very first family - a family of three - with the help of our first official volunteer. This makes all the hard work worthwhile.
3. 2020 Annual General Meeting
We held our AGM in October, online. Thirteen people were able to attend.
Amy Lesleighter is continuing as President, Gillian Minto as Secretary and Rishi Dhillon as Treasurer. Rob Lindsay stepped down as Vice President, with our thanks for his contribution. Eleanor Gough and Elise Quigley will now share this position.
The meeting heard a report of a successful year, with us looking forward expectantly to even better things in 2021.
