Anti-Poverty Week

We think of Australia as the lucky country, but did you know that over three million Australians are living in poverty, including 731,000 children?

This week is Anti-Poverty Week and I have once again launched a gift drive to help our wonderful local charity, Kingborough Helping Hands to help people less fortunate in our local community enjoy the kind of Christmas that the rest of us take for granted.

Donated gifts can be dropped off to my office in Kingston Plaza. Cash donations to Kingborough Helping Hands can be made at Bendigo Bank in Channel Court Shopping Centre, and donations of $2 or more are tax deductible.
