Olivia’s Place has purchased a painting by a local Aboriginal artist after a successful fundraising effort.
“More than 20 percent of the families we supported last year identified as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander - that is a significant amount,” said Kirsten Finger, Olivia’s Place co-founder.
More than 400 people took the opportunity earlier this month to grab babywear bargains and check out the Olivia’s Place warehouse, raising more than $1200 in the process.
“I think people were really blown away by the size of our operation,” said Kirsten Finger, Olivia’s Place co-founder.
In early 2018, Olivia’s Place – which solely relies on private and corporate donations - successfully applied for and received an EnergyAustralia Community Grant.
Twelve months on, Energy Australia caught up with us to find out what difference the grant was making.
