Gippsland Bushfires Appeal Update โ€“ GERF

Source –

Hereโ€™s a quick update on how GERF is travelling, as at 2 March:

๐Ÿ“Œย $7,415,014.88 raised + an additional $2.5 million received from the Victorian Bushfire Appeal Fund to distribute to East Gippslanders impacted by the recent fires (totaling $9,915,014.88)!

๐Ÿ“Œย $6.568 million (66% of all funds raised) paid

๐Ÿ“Œย 1,996 families or residents have received financial support

We’re awed to be able to say we have received almost $10 million in donations and provided support to almost 2000 families.

A big thank you to everyone who came out to watch the Hawks and St Kilda clash in a pre-season match at the weekend and chucked a few gold coins in the GERF donation tins. Every little bit counts and we are so grateful that community members are still digging deep to support bushfire affected East Gippsland residents.
