Eden Community Access Centre Inc
Used their funding to support their outreach program with a new printer. This helps them look after rural and remote locations like Wonboyn, Kiah and Towamba.

Byron Community Centre Pantry
Louise and the team have been busy delivering food to many locals experiencing hardship as a result of COVID-19. Since April, they've supported more than 1,000 families, seniors and stranded international students and most say that the pantry’s deliveries are the difference between eating and going hungry. This shows the value of these community organisations like the Byron Community Pantry, and we were pleased to be able to lend a helping hand through our Community Choices program.

Cypress View Lodge
COVID-19 restrictions curbed resident outings at a 19-bed aged care facility based in Coleambally. Funding allowed for the purchase of two seated elliptical exercise machines and one mini spinning exercise cycle for residents and community day respite clients to use as part of the activity program offered at the facility. These machines have meant that residents and clients could add this exercise option to their regular activity program. Once the COVID-19 restrictions are lifted, this service will be offered to community day respite clients and other community visitors.
