The Southern Peninsula Community Support and Information Centre held it's AGM this week.
The centre is managed by a volunteer Committee of Management and staffed by 7 paid staff and over six (60) dedicated volunteers and provides invaluable frontline support services for people in crisis who need emergency assistance.
Over the 2015/16 period the SPCSIC were there to assist over 6147 general contacts; 3579 crisis and support service visits and 5403 Fresh Food program visits totalling 15,139 contacts who were assisted across a wide range of services.
This assistance offered to the marginalised and most vulnerable in our community would not be possible without the commitment and financial support by many benefactors and also the sponsorship and donations from our local businesses and various other community groups across the Southern Peninsula and grant funding from the Mornington Peninsula Shire - this year the acknowledgement and thank you for all who donated grew to a two page spread in the Annual Report!
Well done to everyone who has offered their support to SPCSIC and I encourage the community to support these wonderful businesses who support others in our community.
Congratulations to Jackie Curry - Manager,, Robyn - Program Co-Ordinator, the Board, Committee and Volunteers for an outstanding contribution towards taking care of our local community on the southern peninsula - it was great to catch up with you all at the AGM
