We love to give back to the local
communities we call home.
We get a stack of requests for support from different groups and organisations within the community. So that we could share the love and lend a hand... we created Local Matters.
This month's featured community groups
Geelong Outreach Van
The Geelong Outreach Van goes out at night, staffed by volunteers, to provide food, water, clothing, toiletries, blankets and other items to Geelong's homeless population. It is a joint initiative of The Salvation Army and St Joseph's College.

Shane O'Brien Memorial Asthma Foundation
Shane O'Brien was a loving and devoted family man, a mate, a neighbour, a work colleague, and an asthmatic - a condition that killed him in October 2001. It is our purpose to educate people on asthma and also provide the Geelong Hospital with equipment and resources to help asthma sufferers and those with respiratory issues.
Each time I go there the staff is more than friendly always greet with a smile and make you feel welcome. I am a bit of a healthy person that spends a lot of time in the gym and I would like to say that on my cheat meals I like to visit grilled because of the healthier options to burger
Just love taking the kids here. So easy and great GF options. Another good experience on a busy night but nothing is too much trouble for the guys.
Tonight i visited the new Waurn ponds store with my parents and my dad commented that it was the best burger he'd ever had. Even better than the food, though, was the friendliness and genuineness of the staff.
