Time to Celebrate!

We are so excited and extremely grateful to be the winners of Chorus Call Australia’s ‪#‎12for12‬ annual donation competition!

We are absolutely thrilled to receive this gift to SCARF. Sincere thanks to Chorus for their generosity and support. SCARF relies on small grants, public donations and volunteer resources to carry out our work. This generous donation from Chorus Call will help SCARF to continue supporting refugee children, youth, adults and older people to lead independent and fulfilling lives in the Illawarra. The prize package will contribute significantly to SCARFs core programs – including personal/family mentoring, homework help programs for primary & secondary school students, computer literacy classes, L2P Mentor Driving Program, youth programs including leadership & wellbeing camps, sport and recreation activities, and social inclusion events. With these funds, we are also excited about the opportunity to develop new programs focused on training, skills-development, work experience and employment opportunities for people from refugee backgrounds.

Many worthy organisations participated this year and we would like to thank them for all their warm wishes and congratulations. Thank you to all the other NFPs who participated in the Chorus Call competition – for the great work you do serving communities in need of help and support. It’s a privilege for us to a part of such a wonderful NFP community.

THANK YOU to our loyal crowd of SCARF supporters out there – and special thanks to John, the SCARF volunteer who nominated us! We would never have known about the Chorus Call competition without John’s kind nomination. We are inspired every day by the wonderful support of our volunteers and our community members from refugee backgrounds, all of whom demonstrate the power to change lives through friendship, understanding and humanity.
