A community bus
SOCF donations are used in the most practical ways to make a real difference to the amazing work already being done by grant recipient organisations. A great example is the bus purchased by the Deadlee Maardars Association thanks to a grant from the Foundation that covered the shortfall in their budget. The bus has helped meet the transport needs for social, education and cultural commitments of people in the Moreton Bay Indigenous community. It has ensured the elderly get to medical appointments, the children get to school and cultural camps and workshops regularly and on time, the unemployed make it to job interviews and the youth participate in cultural leadership programs. The alternative would have meant catching cost prohibitive public transport and often very late at night.
