The Salvation Army is concerned for Feb'09 bush fire affected families with significant back-to-school expenses. Grants may be obtained from a number of our bushfire recovery service locations.
The grant of $300 per child applies to primary or high school aged children from those households who had lost their house or had severe damage to their house, or who have had their incomes substantially reduced due to the fires. Expenses covered include things like school fees, books, uniforms and shoes and the grant will be paid based on the presentation of receipts of goods purchased. Please speak to a Salvation Army worker to confirm what you may be eligible to receive. . To access the grant visit or ring the Salvation Army bushfire recovery services at: Whittlesea for Kinglake Ranges & Nillumbik - 03 9716 2387 or Applications can be faxed through to Pathways Seymour from the Flowerdale Hub.
Great to see such practical assistance.
