This year, four charities have been chosen as the beneficiaries of PROSH's fundraising efforts.
CARAD (Centre for Asylum Seekers, Refugees and Detainees)
CARAD has been providing specialised welfare assistance to over 5500 asylum seekers, refugees and detainees in Western Australia since 2000. The ‘Eat. Share. Connect’ program aims to bring our vulnerable community members together to create meals and share stories whilst developing valuable long-term friendships.
Millennium Kids Inc. (MK) is a not-for-profit environmental youth organisation that empowers young people with a ‘skills for life’ approach so they can become leaders and change-agents in their communities. PROSH funding will be use to cover costs for 5 Pitch for the Planet youth events in 5 regions in WA that aren’t normally able to access MK ‘skills for life’ training. With participants at each of the newly established MK hubs Mirrabooka, Cockburn, Bunbury, Kalgoorlie and Albany, we anticipate an additional 100 projects.
RMH – Ronald McDonald House WA
Ronald McDonald House Perth keeps families close by providing a home away from home for regional WA families who have a sick child receiving hospital treatment in Perth. PROSH’s donation will completely cover the operational costs of a room for a year – supporting up to 36 families in the year.
