Darebin is home to a plethora of excellent organizations and individuals that make significant contributions to the community. Darebin City Council, our project partner, is dedicated to assisting initiatives that are important to the community. We are grateful to Darebin City Council for assisting us by providing a location to store, sort, and distribute our donation products.

We consider ourselves fortunate to have received assistance from councillors who visited and encouraged our volunteers. Our heartfelt, sincere thanks to Mayor Cr. Lina Messina, Deputy Mayor, Cr. Gaetano Greco, and Cr Tim Laurence, also Board Member Cr Emily Dimitriadis. We would like to convey our special thanks to Cr Julie Williams, for volunteering along with her family. We acknowledge her for frequently visiting us, giving her time and efforts that added much more value to our campaigns. Additionally, we acknowledge the many council staff who worked with us and facilitated our stay in the community centre.

In the City of Darebin, we assisted many local residents who for some or other reason went through a very difficult time in their lives, many of them were direct Covid impacted individuals especially members of East Preston Islamic College and many young families who became homeless or were on the verge of becoming one. We also supported a number of families who lost their homes in fire, we were able to replenish their whole wardrobes. Thanks to generous donations by large Australian corporates. We also provided case management and counselling support to young families, young girls, and victims of domestic violence.

We feel there is much more we can do with the council, and we will continue to support the council when requested
