THE Board of the South Gippsland Community Health Foundation recently held their Annual General Meeting and are in the midst of planning for the next twelve months. They welcomed new director Damon Stynes and bid farewell to outgoing director David Pollard. There was a lot to celebrate at the AGM with the expansion of the Foundation’s scope to include support for a broader range of community health projects, including the extension of the Prom Country Aged Care facilities.
The upcoming year will focus on community engagement—reaching out to individuals, groups, and businesses to address questions about the Foundation’s expansion and its new direction.
The Foundation is a charitable fund managed by local individuals to address the needs of our Corner Inlet community. In the last two years alone, the Foundation has contributed half a million dollars to South Gippsland health services. It has a robust history of investing in the community for over ten years.
A new website is now live, providing detailed information for the community on the ambitious new plans and how to get involved.
Board Directors Bruce Lester, Paul Ahern, Damon Stynes and Liz Davies will be available the week beginning 5th December, setting up meet-and-greet stalls in the towns of Foster, Toora, and Fish Creek. They are keen to meet with community members and can answer questions such as how to become a member of the Foundation or how to make a donation.
