Generous Donors Support CASS to Fight COVID-19
Since the emergence of COVID-19 pandemic in Australia, the Government has implemented a series of measures to manage the impact, including strict social distancing rules which have affected the lives of many people. CASS being a community services provider dedicated to serve the community has endeavoured to continue the provision of services during this difficult time. Those frontline staff members of CASS having higher risk of contracting the virus because of their work in direct care have been well protected by the organisation with the provision of appropriate protective equipment and sanitising materials, including hand sanitisers, protective gloves and medical masks, etc. These protective products were scarce and highly priced at the start of the pandemic, but CASS still purchased them from various channels to ensure the safety of its staff members.
Over the last few months, many people and organisations in the community have come forward to make generous donations of protective products and other essential items to CASS, enabling CASS not only be able to provide protection to its staff members but continue to provide quality care for the seniors, people with disability and young children using its services. CASS has released the below list of donors to acknowledge their generosity.
