This Christmas SKOB is supporting a great community initiative: “Good Grub” in the Boroondara Community Outreach.
Good Grub is a mental health ministry supporting people who are socially isolated or living with a mental illness, to live with dignity and engage in community. Many of the participants come from the Stonington Council area as well. It was established by the Uniting Church in 1993 and Good Grub is situated in Kew.
Christmas is a time of celebration, reflection, family and giving. However many in the Good Grub Community do not have contact with family nor the financial resources to celebrate Christmas.
With the support of SKOBFC, Good Grub will provide this community with a warm and welcoming place to celebrate Christmas through their Christmas Party, Christmas Day lunch and Christmas hampers.
Players can help pack the hampers if they wish, give out the hampers or even attend Christmas day lunch. We are hoping to be able to provide at least 30 hampers from SKOBFC to the vulnerable in our community.
Accordingly, we are hoping players, members and supporters will bring grocery items to pre season training before Christmas. Pretty easy thing to do but will make a massive impact.
