Welcome funding boost for community groups

Eleven Sunshine Coast community organisations have been gifted $10,000 each by Maroochy RSL.

The not-for-profit organisation’s annual charity contributions assist multiple local groups to extend their help, education, care and crisis work across a range of services.

More than 30 volunteers and representatives from the 11 community and sporting groups were the surprise beneficiaries of the cash donations, which were announced at a morning tea on July 2.

“It was amazing to see the looks on the faces of our special guests when we told them they were receiving this funding – they thought they were attending for some scones and coffee,” Maroochy RSL CEO Jason Scanes says.

“Many of the groups this morning expressed how grateful they were and how timely these donations are.

“Support for our veterans and our local community remains at the heart of Maroochy RSL.

“The total funding provided to the local community and veterans since 2010 currently stands at almost $19 million.

“These donations could not have been possible without the support of Maroochy RSL’s members and guests, and their generous patronage ensures continued support for our amazing Sunshine Coast community in the coming years.”

The 11 recipients are: The Endeavour Foundation Sunshine Coast, SMEAC Camp X-Ray, WOW Waves of Wellness Sunshine Coast, Maroochydore Hockey Club, Hope House, Salty Souls Legacy, Gateway Care Sunshine Coast, Second Bite Sunshine Coast, Sleep Bus Maroochydore, Mapleton Hall, and Sportsground Trustees and Sunshine Coast Thunder Netball.
