The Gippsland Emergency Relief Fund has received a very welcome donation from the Creators Collective as a result of their Makers Market held just prior to Christmas. GERF was nominated as the recipient charity for the event and received a magnificent donation of $5000.00 from proceeds and carparking fees.
President Andy Tegart said “We are extremely grateful to the Creators Collective and all stall holders at the Makers Market for their generous support. This donation will provide valuable financial support to Gippsland residents impacted by natural disaster”.
GERF has been busy over recent works providing emergency financial grants to Buchan, Welshpool and Longwarry residents affected by heavy rain downfalls and flash flooding.
Andy Tegart said “We have responded quickly to provide support to families dealing with flood water inundation. Our role is very important when disaster strikes and we rely on donations from the community to support our activities”.
Donations to GERF are very welcome and can be made at gerf.org.au/donate.
