$2,000 grant awarded to FareShare

 

Eleanor Brodie is a recipient of the 2013 National Chairman's Citizenship Awards in the Volunteering category for her work with FareShare.

FareShare provides free, tasty, nutritious meals to Victoria’s hungry using donated food not needed by supermarkets, farmers and markets. Eleanor took on the role of publicising the work of FareShare, arranging afternoons for Partners and staff to volunteer in the FareShare kitchen preparing meals for Melbourne’s hungry and homeless.

Eleanor has learnt that you can always do more. "FareShare came out of humble origins, cooking pies in the RACV Club’s kitchens one Saturday a month. They now aim to prepare 20,000 nutritious meals each week for the homeless, the needy and families struggling to make ends meet."

$2,000 grant awarded to PASOL


Eva Yang is a recipient of the 2013 National Chairman's Citizenship Awards in the Volunteering category for her work with PASOL, whose volunteers spend every Saturday with Sudanese refugee children aged 8-16, in order to help them settle into Australia and catch up on school work.


From her volunteering experience, Eva has learnt to respect diversity, but more importantly, she has been able to show the children a different approach to life, enabling them to see more for their futures. She said "They are in this awesome country where as long as they apply themselves, their future is in their own hands, and it’ll be as good as they can make it."


The National Chairman’s Citizenship Award donation will be put towards purchasing a second hand van that will be used to transport the children from their homes to the classrooms. This will mean children don’t have to miss out if their parents are unable to get them to the classrooms.
