The ‘GIANT Hand’ initiative delivers meals to targeted Western Sydney communities.
The ‘GIANT Hand’ initiative delivers meals to targeted Western Sydney communities, with all meals being prepared at the club’s training and administration base at Sydney Olympic Park.
The program is being conducted in partnership with Multicultural New South Wales and with contactless delivery of the meals facilitated by GIANTS staff, local schools and community organisations such as Campsie LAC Police, the Lighthouse Community Support Network and the Addison Road Community Organisation.
GIANTS Head of Community Ali Faraj said the ‘GIANT Hand’ project was an important extension of the club’s community outreach agenda in light of the current COVID challenges. It will assist in engaging the community with the club and is part of the GIANTS giving back to the important stakeholders within the club community.
“A lot of people in Western Sydney are doing it really tough at the moment and as an organisation we’ve always been very aware of the role we can play in the community to support those most vulnerable,” Faraj said.
“One of the key planks of the GIANTS purpose is to enrich the lives of the communities in which operate and many communities in Western Sydney are currently dealing with challenges they’ve not seen before. We know of a lot of people who, for various reasons, who are struggling to put food on the table for their families right now, which is why we’ve devised this initiative.
“The ‘GIANT Hand’ program wouldn’t have been possible without the support of Multicultural NSW and our community partners, and we encourage everyone to do what they can to assist those in need during this difficult time.”
