The Dandelion Support Network has supported 4000 families in need over the last five years.
The Dandelion team held a high tea at Eventhouse Cronulla to celebrate the occasion and raise additional funds for their work in the community.
Sutherland Shire Mayor, Cr Carmelo Pesce, was a special guest at the event, along with more than 100 supporters.
“We have a proud record of volunteer work in the Sutherland Shire and Dandelion is leading the way, addressing a direct need in our community by supporting families and ensuring the safety of infants. Council is proud to support Dandelion and the important work they do,” Cr Pesce said.
All funds raised from the high tea will go towards ensuring babies and children have access to nursery items essential for their safety, well-being and development.
Each month, the volunteer organisation assists 120 families in need from across greater Sydney.
General manager Nicole Howard is thrilled to have supported so many families but highlights the importance of community support in this achievement.
“The funds raised at the high tea will help us cover some critical costs but the need is growing each month,” Ms Howard said.
“We are always looking for partners or volunteers to work with us and are so grateful for the support we receive.
“We rely on so many parts of the community to undertake our work and every part is important.”
