2016 FRRR Sidney Myer ‘Back to School’ Program
Our 2016 Back to School program was another outstanding success with us bringing $33,750 into the Mackay business community in the form of 675 x $50 school stationery and school uniform vouchers distributed to families needing assistance with the costs of getting their children back to school.
35 State primary schools and 10 not-for-profit organisations across the Whitsunday/Isaac/Mackay region received vouchers to distribute.
In bringing this support to our Mackay Community, the Mackay Community Foundation was generously supported by the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal, Sidney Myer Foundation , Stan and Maureen Duke Foundation and Dalrymple Bay Coal Terminal. We also acknowledge the great assistance provided by Carroll’s Newsagency and Uniform Solutions in delivering the program.
