All money raised as part of the EOFY Winter Appeal will be reinvested back into the local community enabling the Foundation to continue its important work. Last year during COVID, GSF saw unprecedented generosity raising more than $40,000. Some of this money made sure the Food Link program kept feeding people struggling to put food on the table and it also helped to clothe and keep warm many children in families that were doing it tough.
Winter is a time when issues such as food insecurity, rough sleeping, and keeping children of struggling families clothed and warm, are amplified and we are motivated to want to make a difference where we can.

Having seen firsthand the additional stress that our cold winter months have on many in our community already finding it tough, GSF CEO, Cheryl Hammer said, “It is so important that we provide resources to support those in need. We encounter many stories about how people are struggling but seeing it firsthand can be very confronting.
GSF’s focus is to support the most vulnerable and disadvantaged in our community. Our community is proud, resilient and innovative however data is revealing pockets of entrenched disadvantage throughout our region.
