In the month of June 2013, Foundations Care was honoured to attend the Community Recognition Night at Bunning’s Browns Plains. Foundations Care has been involved with the Browns Plains store since November 2011, where we were given the opportunity to conduct sausage sizzles. Since then our partnership with Bunning’s in Browns Plains has been a rewarding experience, as Foundations Care have been able to raise a total of $7604 from November 2011 to June 2013.
As a result of this, these funds have allowed Foundations Care to:
- Pay for Christmas present upgrades for 100+ children;
- Additional services at our end of year Christmas Carer and child party, such as hiring a clown, magician, face painters, D.J and door prizes, gift vouchers and more;
- School holiday programme activities;
- Paint, brushes, art and craft supplies;
- Plants, soil, containers and fertilizer;
- Food products for carer activities;
- Animated Disney and Pixar DVD’s for children in care;
- $1500 was spent to hired a movie theatre for our children and carers to watch Despicable Me 2 and everyone was given everyone a small popcorn and small drink; and finally
- $600 has been put towards the purchase of food for upcoming sausage sizzles.
Foundations Care would love to extend our appreciation to Bunning’s Browns Plains and all people involved for allowing us the opportunity to raise funds for our program.
