They have organised and set into motion their plan to provide benevolent relief to community members in need, including but not limited to, people facing poverty, distress, depression, disability, disease, hunger, destitution, abuse, displacement, chronic illness (including terminal illnesses), bereavement, convalescence, misfortune, trauma, isolation, family violence, domestic abuse, helplessness and people at risk of homelessness or people experiencing homelessness. (This has extended to all those affected by the current coronavirus pandemic.) Our relief extends to people regardless of age, sex, race, ethnic background, religion, political beliefs or marital status; including but not limited to, widows, orphans, infants, children, the elderly, single parents, large families, low-income earners, homeless people, new migrants and asylum seekers. We help people to resume healthy, whole and balanced lifestyles and to improve their quality of life. We aim to eventually help Casey residents to transition from a place of isolation and segregation into becoming valued members of an inclusive and socially adept community.
"We run a food pantry which feeds hundreds of residents daily. We provide fruit, vegetables, bread, bakery products, meats, eggs, drinks, non-perishables and in some cases clothing, homeware and household essentials among other items. Our program has been recognised around Victoria and we’ve been privileged to make Headline news in the press and receive Awards & Nominations from the City of Casey and throughout Victoria; including Casey Volunteer Pair, Holt Australia Day Awards, Group of the Year, Casey Citizen and Victorian Premier’s Champion Award in Leadership. Our project right now is to assist Casey residents who are experiencing difficulty as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. We’ve had an influx of community members seeking our assistance during these unprecedented times and we haven't turned any one away, neither do we intend to. Our services extend to delivering produce to those who were immobile and this service is now increasing rapidly. We face additional challenges implementing health and safety measures, including but not limited to
sanitisation. And here is a press article as person of the year."
