On behalf of our members, WA’s P&N Bank is proud to launch its inaugural Happy Bellies fundraising appeal which aims to support key community partner and local not-for-profit, Manna, expand their School Breakfast Program.
Every week, Manna distribute 3,500 breakfast meals to primary and senior school students in areas of need throughout Perth. The food is provided to 36 schools for their breakfast programs which are run by the local school chaplains and P&Cs.
As a non-government funded agency, Manna relies solely on the generosity of West Australians to continue their relief work into the community by way of donations and volunteer efforts.
P&N members can directly assist local children and their families by donating to the program through this special fundraising appeal. Funds raised will help Manna achieve their goal of increasing the number of schools supported in 2021 from 36 to 48.
Manna Board Chair, Damian Burton, said P&N’s member’s support would allow continuity of the School Breakfast Program and the provision of essential breakfast items that Manna supply, such as dairy products, fruit, jam and muffins.
“We really appreciate P&N coming on board. Their support, together with member donations through the appeal, will help us add a further 12 schools to the program and give even more kids an opportunity to start the day right so they can focus at school,” Mr Burton said.
As part of the community partnership, a first for Manna, P&N will match appeal donations up to a total of $10,000.
It costs Manna $1 to provide a child breakfast, so every donation made to the Happy Bellies fundraising appeal, no matter how small, will make a considerable difference to the work they are doing in our community and support disadvantaged kids who would otherwise go without this vital meal.
At P&N we know that when people work together, individuals, families, groups and our community will flourish, so we encourage our members to get behind this worthy cause and donate to help feed West Australians in need.
P&N members and the general public can donate to the Happy Bellies fundraising appeal online via the P&N website or using a tap-and-go card or smartphone in a P&N Bank branch.
