The Dollars 4 Doonas campaign is off to a booming start with a $15,720 donation from the Hazara community.
“As members of the Naracoorte community, we are very happy to be part of (the) efforts to raise funds for the Dollars 4 Doonas campaign,” the Hazara community said.
“Our families have been deeply touched by the images of fire that have scorched the lives of so many. We would also like to express our thanks to the firefighters who fought these blazes.”
Australian Migrant Resource Centre’s Jenny Stirling said she isn’t surprised the Hazara community has donated this amount. “They are an integral part of the Naracoorte wider community and they want to demonstrate the clear allegiance that they have to their community.” Donation tins are now spread throughout the town.
Those wanting a receipt for their donation can visit MiniJumbuk, TerryWhite Chemart, Elders Real Estate and Elders Rural, Hansen Design and Print, Naracoorte Lucindale Council and Lucindale General Store. More details at www.dollars4doonas.org.
