Frankston Community Appeal 15 Tubs Full Appeal “Live locally, give locally” 26th Annual Frankston Community Appeal Each year CSF seeks cash donations to buy non-perishable groceries to put together festive hampers – each worth approximately $100 - for Frankston families. Many local businesses, organisations and schools run their own grocery collection events and give CSF cash and in-kind donations for our volunteers to make into additional hampers for individuals. Village Clinic, Mt. Eliza, has been a major donor to the Frankston Community Appeal for the last ten years. Their first target was to fill 15 fifty litre plastic tubs with festive foods of a non-perishable nature. In 2016, the Village Clinic doctors, nurses, receptionists and allied health staff, patients and well wishers filled 104 tubs - which is the most in the appeal’s history. Cash and in-kind donations 201 6 : 572 Hampers with food and gifts were distributed to local families and people living alone. These hampers were put together using: $21,355 total cash donations up to 2nd February, 2017, a significant in-kind donation from Operation Larder which supplied 300 units of ham, Christmas cakes, Christmas puddings, custard and a further large in-kind donation of cordial and mixed lollies from Frankston RSL. A special mention to Centenary Park Golf Club in Frankston for providing this year’s largest single donation and also to Allison Monkhouse Frankston for sponsoring our candlelights for the Frankston Festival of Lights Fundraiser. 30 Seaford Hall Event A big thanks to Maali, Nicole and Brooke for the wonderful fundraiser they organised for the Frankston Community Appeal.
