The Gift Of Giving

This Christmas Souths Cares is encouraging our Members and supporters to give a donation to aid their Gift of Giving campaign and give back to those who need it most.

Starting today Souths Cares will be spending 12 days visiting a wide range of community groups, schools and individuals to spread the magic of Christmas and help raise funds for the charity’s important community programs.   

Every donation enables the charity to continue helping disadvantaged children, youth and their families and especially during the busy period of Christmas.

“It’s been a massive year for the Souths Cares charity and we are really proud of what we have been able to achieve so far,” said Souths Cares staff member Angus Robilliard.

“The next couple of weeks we will be supporting a range of community groups and schools leading into Christmas for our Gift of Giving Campaign”.

On the back of an exceptional 2016 Souths Cares has raised the bar in 2017 notching up some incredible achievements along the way, including:

  • Over 7,000 primary school students completing the Rabbitohs KARI Wellbeing Program.
  • 94 Aboriginal high school students engaged in the Nanga Mai Marri (Dream Big) mentoring program.
  • 140 Aboriginal candidates successfully placed into employment under the New Careers for Aboriginal People Program.
  • 1,400 students completed the Indigenous Oral Health Program.
  • 150 ‘money can’t buy’ Rabbitohs game day experiences delivered throughout the 2017 NRL season. 
  • More than 210 disadvantaged individuals and charities received support and practical assistance from Souths Cares.
