Since July this year, the Rotary Club of Belgrave have been supporting the Dandenong Ranges Emergency Relief Services (DRERS) on a financial basis, to help them keep their vehicle on the road. The vehicle is needed for picking up food and other supplies and dropping them off and carrying out their regular activities in supporting the needy in this area. As DRERS is a non-profit organisation and dependent on sources of funding to help them help the needy, the financial assistance from Belgrave Rotary has been very much appreciated. Belgrave Rotary recently provided signage for the DRERS vehicle showing their involvement in providing support.
DRERS supports people in the south-west area of the Yarra Ranges Council with food, food vouchers, clothing vouchers, assistance in paying bills, crisis counselling and other things. You can find out more about them at www.drers.org.au.
Rotary’s mission is to provide service to others, promote integrity and advance world understanding. The Rotary Club of Belgrave is one of the longest running clubs in the area, having recently celebrated 60 years in service. They currently support a couple of local non-profit organisations, local schools with awards at end of year and other events in the area.
