Operating during the latter half of 2020 came with its challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the impact it had on everyone. This made our support for the grants program even more meaningful and we relished the opportunity to work with local groups making a real difference at a grassroots level.
Funds were allocated to 13 community groups across the three regions, in both the social and environmental space.
Successful applicants were provided funding for what they needed most. For example, Nambour Meals on Wheels purchased a blast chiller which increased its capacity to deliver food to the most vulnerable.
We were proud to be a part of this initiative and loved telling the stories of the heroes behind these community groups.
The Fresh team continues to support delivery of the Unitywater grants program each year.
