Cafs 2021 Christmas Appeal
Cafs' annual Christmas appeal has officially launched for 2021. The appeal aims to provide disadvantaged and vulnerable children with the joy and love that everyone should experience at this time of year. Many of the families and children in our care do not have the expendable income to buy gifts or food for special meals, so Cafs aims to bring that to them at Christmas.
Thread Together is now in Ballarat
Cafs is proud to now have launched Thread Together in Ballarat. The new hub will help supply those who need it with new clothing. The Ballarat store is unique in that it's the first to launch in regional Victoria. Thread Together is a not-for-profit organisation driving social and environmental change by redistributing excess clothing stock through purpose-designed clothing hubs.
Indigenous Outreach Project – “Don’t Give Up On Yourself”
Ballarat & District Aboriginal Cooperative (BADAC) and Cafs had Indigenous Outreach Projects come out to their region to work with their local Berry Street kids to make a powerful music video. The video created highlights the need to take time out from our screens get out for exercise, hang out with mates and connect to country.
