CSF AR2018 Annual Report - Final-2018 - Page 12

Trustees Material Aid Trust Fund This Trust Fund was formed in September 1993 to manage donated money for emergency relief distribution. Funds from the trust have been used during this time to purchase non-perishable grocery items and shopping vouchers for special festive hampers - given to families and individuals - along with the purchasing of gifts and other items for young people in need. Trustees are responsible for all donated funds to the Frankston Community Appeal, also referred to as the annual Christmas Hamper Appeal, which last year oversaw the distribution of 580 hampers to Frankston families in need. The Trustees meet quarterly with the agency’s Treasurer and Manager to receive reports and monitor the progress of the Trust Funds. The Frankston Community Appeal will be entering its 28th year in 2018.
