CWA Disaster Relief Fund receives $15,000 donation
THE Country Women’s Association (CWA) of NSW Disaster Relief Fund was set up specifically to assist individuals and families in financial circumstances due to disaster. At present, funds are being directed to help farmers and their families in NSW struggling with worsening drought conditions, to assist with household expenses such as groceries, vehicle maintenance, school, electricity, a rates instalment up to $1000, as well as telephone, dental and medical bills.
The CWA of NSW Disaster Relief Fund received an additional $15,000 from bearing and transmission suppliers CBC, BSC and Webster BSC (all three are part of the Inenco Group) on Friday, October 26.
“We have been working directly with farmers for close to 100 years in this country and have seen first-hand the effects the current drought is having on our customers. At our recent National Branch Managers’ Summit we collectively decided to contribute funds to support the people we have worked closely with via the help of the CWA,” CEO of the Inenco Industrial Solutions Stream, Paul Connolly, said.
“We chose CWA because of their outstanding track record in the community and the fact that they have a straight forward process to get funds to the affected families,” Mr Connolly added.
“On behalf of the CWA and drought affected families who will benefit from this donation, we thank the Inenco Group,” Wongarbon CWA Branch President and immediate Macquarie Group CWA Past President Majorie Blatch said.
"We encourage families who are affected to head to our website and complete the application form. The grants are available, and we want to make sure we get it to families as soon as possible," she said.
