Australia Post announced its latest People of Post grant recipients, with 356 community organisations receiving funding thanks to a nomination from an Australia Post team member.
The diverse community groups will share in almost $350,000 for projects such as community gardens, arts and crafts workshops, and volunteer training.
The People of Post program takes a grassroots approach to supporting projects, with Australia Post team members encouraged to nominate based on their own personal connection to a local organisation. Recipients include non-profit groups across metro, regional and remote areas across every state of Australia, with more than half awarded in regional and remote communities.
This year’s funding included contributions towards cooking equipment for Kununurra Community Garden to support vulnerable local residents, first aid and defibrillator training for Stanley Rural Community, and care packs to support breast cancer patients through Pink Angels in Dubbo – along with 353 other worthy projects.
Daymark secured widespread regional and community coverage for the grants, with more than 60 mentions across radio, print and online.
