Over 170 local children have been kitted out with brand new school supplies through the Helping Families Back to School project in collaboration with NBS.
Branch Manager for NBS in Richmond, Brent Williams says the community is at the heart of the financial service provider’s core values, so this was the perfect way to give back.
With rising interest rates and inflation, more and more people are struggling. By donating $5000 to such a great organisation, we’ve managed to support so many families at a time when finances are already stretched.”
Founder for Helping Families Kristy Rowe says cash donations are invaluable, and with additional help from The Warehouse Richmond they were able to give those kids the best start to their school year.
“And as of 8 March, we’ll be open Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from 10am to 1pm, so people will have even more access to our services,” Kristy says.
