Thank you Pets of the Homeless!

When one of our clients rescued a neglected mother dog and her puppies, we called on Pets Of The Homeless Australia to facilitate some extra support.
We gratefully received five bags of puppy food plus a box of canned food, all of which were passed on to help the dogs gain weight. This was a fantastic outcome and we are happy to see the dogs returning to health!

Myer Trivia Night

A HUGE thank you to Stephanie and the team at Myer Eastland for hosting a wonderful event last night. We loved coming along to help raise funds for Anchor and also share some of the ways we support our community.
Thanks to everyone who worked to create a fantastic experience, and each of the amazing supporters who attended. Special mention to Words by Emma for being a fabulously entertaining MC.
Thank you to the suppliers who donated over $14,500 worth of prizes! The silent and live auctions both attracted some very energetic bidding!
Everyone at Anchor feels incredibly privileged to have MYER Eastland’s behind us. Your support over the past 3 years has made a huge impact on the support we can provide to our community.
And if all of this wasn’t enough… We are proud to announce that once again MYER Eastland has signed on to work with Anchor for yet another year of fundraising and partnership! Thank you.

Thanks CommBank!

When our kinship care team met 15 year old “Nick” he told us about ongoing pain and discomfort in his back and neck. His carers were unable to fund the chiropractic treatment that would help him live an active life, causing stress to the entire family.
With thanks to funding from the 2018 Commonwealth Bank Centenary Grants, we were able to support him and his kinship carers to give Nick access to ongoing chiropractor appointments. Nick now reports his back and neck are feeling much better and he is so thankful for the support he has received!
It is only with additional donations that we can support families like Nicks. If you’d like to help Anchor continue our work, check out our website.

CommBank Emerald

Thanks to the wonderful team at Commonwealth Bank in Emerald. This $500 donation will go towards helping our clients achieve their education and training goals. Naomi had a great catch up with Cheree who has been a fantastic supporter of ours!

Boronia Library Knitting group

Last week we had a visit from Michelle on behalf of the Boronia Library Knitting group. These fantastic donations will help keep locals warm this Winter. As an extra special gift, the teddy will find a new home when one of our young clients welcome their new baby in a few weeks. Thank you very much!

Lilydale Library book sale donation

Thanks to Lilydale Library, and everybody that purchased a book at their recent sale. Our Housing and Support Services have received $841.60! These funds will go towards supporting local individuals and families that are experiencing or are at risk of homelessness.

Card planet donation

Thanks to Card Planet for their recent donation. The wonderful cards we received were sent out for some very special people.

Card Planet are committed to working with local and national charities, and their support is greatly appreciated!

Thanks to Sarah!

A huge thanks to our most recent supporter!
Sarah and her friends have collected items to be distributed by local groups. With Mothers Day coming up, these handbags will make great presents for some of the women we are working with. Sarah is proof that one person can make a huge difference to the community! Thank you!
