Easternwell supports Toowoomba

YMCA Queensland has been announced as one of the six groups in Toowoomba to receive grant funding from Easternwell, one of Australia’s leading drilling and well servicing companies and subsidiary of Transfield Services, in recognition of its valued contribution to the region.

The not-for-profit organisation received $1,200 through the latest rounds of Easternwell’s community grants program to further strength its Y Ability Day Program - a program designed to empower young adults with intellectual and physical disabilities and integrate them into the community.

YMCA Queensland’s Day Program Coordinator, Linda Saunders, said “The Y Ability Day Program’s core focus is to equip our participants with the life skills they require to live independently. We provide them with opportunities to volunteer with local groups and organisations, participate in educational programs and be involved with community activities.”

“The funding received from Easternwell has enabled us to purchase new equipment for our outdoor activities, as well as a barbeque that will also benefit the entire community.”

Since the launch of the grass-roots initiative in 2011, Easternwell has provided over $28,967 to more than 18 groups in the Toowoomba 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 90 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.
