It made sense to dedicate the whole month of August to helping out the homeless.

Rosies are a great organisation helping out the homeless in SE Qld.  They also happen to run a free BBQ for homeless folk right here in Aspley.  It turns out their current BBQ is falling apart and they need a new one.  The Cup From Above Community has committed themselves to getting them a new BBQ so they can keep going with that great work.  We haven’t received a quote yet but we should be able to get a really sturdy & reliable one for $500.  There is a great synergy between our organisations here in Aspley so we look forward to continuing to work alongside the same folk into the future.  The donation jar for this fundraiser is on the counter at Cup From Above (It is now screwed down to the counter after last months dilemma!).

And of course we have our usual community concert.  This month it will be on Saturday, 30th August 2014.  We will have a usual great line up of musicians and it’ll be a really great night.  (More details on this to come).

Have a great August everyone!
