The annual ‘We Care Week’, held in partnership with Majestic Church Brisbane, raised over $20,000 for local projects and people in November.
This year, We Care Week held a number of projects to raise funds, including the first ever 4012 Community Challenge. Locals came together as a community to navigate a checkpoint course throughout Nundah to get active, have fun and make a difference. The winning teams were able to nominate their charity of choice, with Compassion 4 Community receiving $1,000 and the Northside Connect Domestic Support Group receiving $500.
In other projects, We Care Week completed projects at the Youth Lodge, sponsored Swarm Performing Arts Scholarships, committed random acts of kindness and raised $5,000 for Compassion 4 Community, which will provide 600 meals to the homeless and vulnerable in Nundah. They also paid in full the Christmas laybys for 22 families, which will provide families with some joy at Christmas.
This was thanks to the individuals and local businesses who gave generously this year, in a true display of locals caring for locals.
