Bringing some joy to families in the Goulburn Region

News | Posted December 20, 2021

For the second year in a row the Greater Shepparton Foundation has supported OzChild’s SafeCare program during what can often be a difficult time of year.

SafeCare educators Belinda and Sam have been busy making these delicious and delight-filled hampers for families who are participating in the family preservation program in the Goulburn region.

The hampers were funded by a generous grant from the Greater Shepparton Foundation who are great supporters of the SafeCare program and families in the Shepparton area.

Belinda spent days shopping up a storm to thoughtfully fill the hampers with premium quality food items for families to enjoy over the festive season.

“Many families struggle during this time of year, and after the last two years we’ve had we wanted to make sure Christmas was special for the families we support”

OzChild is extremely grateful for the ongoing support of the Greater Shepparton Foundation and proud to work alongside the foundation to bring a little festive cheer to families in Greater Shepparton.
