Let's talk Christmas. While retailers are decking out their shelves with the latest toys, decorations, cards and wrapping paper, the team at Cafs are putting together 'wish lists' from children in our care. We think you'll agree that everyone deserves something special on Christmas day however we need your help. It's only thanks to generous donations from companies, staff, customers and the community that Cafs can continue to provide Christmas cheer to children in need. This year we are requesting that children under 10 years of age receive toys, and children over the age of 10 years be provided with gift vouchers, so they have the freedom to select their own gift. We also encourage in-kind and financial donations to the new Cafs Foundation so that we can use funds to continue to support children, youth and families throughout the year. The Care Farm - from little things big things grow Farming! What does it mean to you? The dictionary describes it as, ‘an area of land and its buildings, used for growing crops and rearing animals’. If you mention farming to the team at Cafs, they will tell you it’s so much more. Operating a farm environment is a costly endeavour. Operating a farm that provides necessary relief and therapeutic benefits to at risk and vulnerable people requires an even greater investment. The Care Farm will provide a vital service for Ballarat and the surrounding community. To meet this need, the Cafs Care Farm is seeking sponsorships and/or donations to assist with the development of an Art Therapy Space, Indoor Sensory Playground, Animal Interaction Area and other therapeutic areas. Sponsorships start from $500 and are a terrific way for your business to support a trusted Ballarat charity. If your business, community or sporting group would like to donate to Cafs we have a diverse of range of programs and services available.
