Reaching our Community Through Services, Projects and Partnerships Santa Calls Campaign CSF was happy to be involved in this mobile phone loan out program over Christmas which allowed our clients to use a mobile phone to keep in touch with workers, family and friends. This inspired CSF to work in partnership with Better Life Communications on an expanded mobile phone load out program. Blessing Bags Frankston Sunrise Charity Golf Day CSF was honoured to be the major recipient of funds from this special event. Club president Mr Eren Erdogen presented CSF with a cheque for $15,000 at a special breakfast presentation at Sages Cottage. A further $15,000 in Federal Government grant funding has also been provided for a $30,000+ project that will see a new perishable food and storage space be built at CSF in early 2017. Blessing Bags is a great initiative from Laura and her team, making up re-sealable bags that include essential toiletries such as shampoo, soap, a toothbrush and toothpaste. Blessing Bags has been CSF’s largest supplier of toiletry packs over the reporting period. Share The Dignity Winter Sleep Out CSF was happy to be invited as the guest speaker at St Lukes Frankston, youth group winter sleep out. It was fantastic to have some of these brilliant young people come and visit CSF and present a cheque for nearly $600. Community Support Frankston CSF is often visited by the wonderful volunteers of ‘Share the Dignity’ who collect and donate sanitary items for CSF’s female clients. This great project believes that sanitary items should be a right NOT a privilege. | Annual Report 2016 25
