We sold 2,640 Krispy Kreme donuts (220 boxes), raising more than $1700 for our L2P driving and Leaving Care programs.
Thank you to everyone who supported this fundraiser, especially to our great “Friends of Junction”, McRae Holden, in Wodonga, and RSM, in Albury, for their donut orders and also for their ongoing support for the work we do to support young people in our community.
The Krispy Kreme donut drive fundraiser was so successful that we’re thinking about making it an annual event!
Briony, our Team Leader in Specialist Adolescent Services, and Jacque, our Volunteers Co-ordinator, drove to Melbourne to collect the donuts.
And, to their great excitement, they had so many orders that they got to visit the secret donut factory to collect them!
Jacque says: “This money will go directly to helping support young people to reach their full potential through additional professional driving lessons and activities to encourage their community engagement.”
The funds raised will be used in two programs that support young people to achieve their full potential:
Our L2P driving program matches experienced volunteer drivers with local young people who do not have a car or anyone who can teach them to drive.
Funded by VicRoads and supported by the Transport Accident Commission, L2P supports Learner drivers to reach the required 120 hours to obtain their P-plates.
Our Leaving Care program supports young people who have lived in Out of Home Care because they have been unable to live with their families or in foster care to transition to independent living in the community.
Our volunteer Leaving Care mentors are an important part of this support, providing guidance and a positive role model.
