Salvation Army programs need extra funding.MARK PADGETT July 4, 2014 3:05am
The Salvation Army Community Lunch and Seymour Community Garden have been going from strength to strength .
It was a shock.
So, this article is about seeking support for these essential services in Seymour, which have cost about $30
Many hands make light work and an adequate amount could be raised if many people donate what they can to this good cause .
The Friday Community Lunch regularly caters to a diverse range of people from Seymour and districts and is highly valued by many of its 60 to 90 weekly participants.
Our Christmas lunch caters for around 100 people.
We look after many disadvantaged people, but the focus is on fun and inclusive community development.
For six years the Salvation Army has generously offered these lunches for a gold coin donation.
Seymour Community Garden displays a positive alternative
With difficult times looming ahead, Seymour Community Garden is well placed to become a treasured resource (of training and help) for the health and wellbeing of many.
The Community Garden held its opening in 2012 with guest speaker Costa Georgiadis from ABC’s Gardening Australia, and then went on to win Mitchell Shire’s 2013-14 Community Health and Wellbeing grant to run six months of food gardening and dietary workshops/presentations with highly skilled and experienced presenters.
We are currently growing vegies for fundraising at markets.
The next step is to run weekly food-growing workshops, shared between the Community Garden and other food producers and invite attendance from the community and job network agencies (to fulfil part of their requirements).
These types of activities will bring the garden to the level where it would be able to raise adequate funding in the near future, and help our community.
Seymour needs employment, has space to grow food, and everyone needs to eat.
These programs could be essential services for the present and future of Seymour.
Could you please help us to get there?
Should you wish to view the Seymour community activities and/or explore how to make a tax deductible donation, email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 0457
We are seeking expressions of financial support by July 18.
