A local charity organisation that Beaconhills College has supported from more than 20 years is under threat of closure.
Pakenham’s 4C’s, which provides emergency relief to families in need, may have to close its doors before Christmas unless it can secure government funding, according to an article in this week’s Pakenham Gazette.
The news coincides with Beaconhills College’s Empty Christmas Tree Appeal and our Christmas Hamper Drive, both intended to provide gifts and non-perishable goods to the 4C’s for distribution.
However, Pakenham Campus Senior Chaplain Rev. Peggy Kruse urged College families to keep donating goods until Wednesday 28 November as donations will still be distributed to families in need in our community (details on how to donate are in the College weekly bulletin notices).
Rev. Kruse said she hoped that 4C’s receive the assistance they need from governments to continue delivering their vital services.
Berwick Campus’ Empty Christmas Tree Appeal gifts go to the Windermere Community Centre and are also distributed to families experiencing hardship, while the campus’ hamper drive will direct donations to the Casey North Community and Information Support Services.
4C’s have set up a GoFundMe page (www.gofundme.com/4CsCrisisCentre)
