Like most of Queensland, Home Hill Community Kindergarten is making a conscious effort to conserve water in their community. Soon, the Kindergarten will have a water tank of their own to teach children the importance of water conservation as part of their sustainability program after receiving a grant for $5380 to fund the project.
The kindergarten is one of nine not-for-profit community groups throughout the State to benefit from our Good for Good Community Grants, sharing in a pool of $100,000 that we provide to our communities each year. “This year we saw a 10% increase in the funds awarded through the Program which we were able to do because of the support our communities have shown us over the past year.” said Group Chief Executive Officer, Aaron Newman.
It’s no surprise that our panel found the kindergarten’s request for a new water tank to conserve water and educate the next generation on environmental sustainability as a great opportunity to make a long-standing impact in the community. It’s undeniably a fantastic effort by the kindergarten to benefit local kids and the environment by providing an interactive learning experience in a fun and positive way.
This grant isn’t the only one the Home Hill community has witnessed though. Ms Collins our Home Hill Branch Manager said Queensland Country recently celebrated 40 years of servicing the Burdekin region, and has invested over $200,000 in sponsorships and grants in the past 10 years alone.
“It’s all part of our difference as a customer owned banking organisation,” she said.
“We can invest our profits into local communities while providing the best possible products and services to our Members.”
Our Good for Good Community Grants are enormously important to the growth of our local communities. We see the importance of supporting projects of this nature to enable people to participate, experience, grow, learn, reach out, connect, make a difference and be safe.
