Support Those Doing It Tough

24 June 2020

Letter to the Editor

As temperatures drop and we draw towards the end of the financial year, I am calling on the community to donate to the Vinnies COVID-19 Appeal to support people doing it tough.

With families around Australia under intense financial hardship and uncertain job prospects due to the devastating COVID-19 pandemic, Vinnies is bracing for an increase in calls for assistance once the government’s JobKeeper and JobSeeker support payments are wound back in the coming months.

We need to raise $1.2 million to ensure people already struggling and those who have never had to seek assistance get the support they need to avoid falling into poverty.

Your generosity will help families have enough food and be able to keep the lights on.

To ensure all donations over $2.00 are tax deductible, please donate before 30 June by calling 13 18 12 or visiting vinnies.org.au.

Jack de Groot, Vinnies NSW CEO
