The Beauty Bank received one of five Grace Gives Australia grants in 2017. They used their grant to provide 50 people experiencing hardship and leaving a place of domestic violence with a hygiene and toiletry gift bag.
Grace Information Management hosted an afternoon tea for volunteers from The Beauty Bank at the Grace Campbelltown office. Both Grace Information Management Sydney and Grace Head Office were able to learn more about the emergency service that The Beauty Bank provides by way of their Little Luxuries gift bag.
Information Management’s Eastern General Manager, Patrick Walsh and Removals Eastern General Manager, Derryk Guyer, kicked off the event, presenting the $10,000 cheque to Denise Dolan, Melissa Peel and Sandra Reis of The Beauty Bank.
Volunteers from The Beauty Bank also brought along a “Little Luxuries” demonstration bag, showcasing the personal care items that are compiled and donated to peoples between secure accommodation options. Denise took the time to explain to the office that at Christmas time alone, The Beauty Bank assembled and sent out 900 bags to men, women and children in need.
