Easternwell supports Pilbara Community

Karratha Community House Inc. has been announced as one of the recipients from the Pilbara region to receive grant funding from Easternwell, one of Australia’s leading drilling and well servicing company and subsidiary of Transfield Services, in recognition of its valued contribution to the region.

The not for profit organisation received $2,000 through the latest rounds of Easternwell’s community grants program to purchase new resources and further develop its early learning programs.

Karratha Community House Inc. Board Member, Conor Crane, said “We are a primarily volunteer-based organisation and therefore rely heavily on the support of our members for monetary income and support of our members and board for the donation of their time.

“The funding received from Easternwell has enabled us to purchase new play equipment, toys and art supplies which will have a direct positive impact on our playgroups and early learning programs.

“We have around 200 young families from throughout Karratha who visit us on a regular basis and will now they be able to enjoy the benefits of Easternwell’s generous donation"

Since the launch of the grass-roots initiative in 2011, Easternwell has provided over $38,000 to more than 24 groups in the Pilbara region

Easternwell’s Chief Operating Officer, Tim Phelan, said “the grants program was designed to shine a light on the groups and associations that are making a difference in their community, but are in need of a helping hand.

“Easternwell is passionate about supporting the regions where we conduct business and our grants program is one of the ways we are creating lasting benefits for these communities.

“Over the years we have provided grant funding to more than 110 groups throughout Australia which has enabled them to grow their services to benefit the wider community.”

Applications for the Easternwell Community Grants Program are assessed twice a year and must be received before 14 September 2014. Eligible groups may apply for funding up to $2,000.
