$6000 Charity Donation – Vinnies Appreciation Letter

St Vincent de Paul Letter of Thanks

We’re happy to have made a difference in the lives of those most impacted right now by COVID-19 virus via our $6000 donation to Vinnies!

Here’s what they had to say:

Dear Russell,

Letter of Appreciation to Russell French, Webinar Partners, Sponsors and Presenters

On behalf of the Society and in particular, the St Vincent de Paul Cheltenham Conference, our sincere thanks for the generous donation you, Webinar Partners, Sponsors and Presenters, listed below have made to the St Vincent de Paul Society. As requested by you, the donation will be used to help those families that have and will become affected during this COVID-19 pandemic.

Your generous donation will continue to help the Society support those families affected by job losses or reduced hours by providing help with food and essential cards to obtain fresh food items. It will also help with other needs including energy bills, pharmacy requirements and some schooling expenses for children needing assistance during the isolation period and beyond.

The funds were raised by Russell French of Energetic Consulting by organising a fundraiser called “COVID-19 – Solar & Energy Storage Industry Update & Business Support Webinar”. The purpose of the webinar, which went live on the 30 March 2020, was to help businesses and members of the solar and energy storage industry who have been impacted by the COVID-19 virus and the subsequent lockdowns. Organisations like ours, depend on generous donors such as you and your industry colleagues so that we can continue to meet the needs of those who require financial or material assistance.

Energetic Consulting raised $6000 for families in need, with the help of 3 event partners, 14 events sponsors and 5 presenters on the webinar as listed below.

Clean Energy Council (CEC), Smart Energy Council & Solar Cutters.

Webinar Sponsors

Please accept this letter as our thank you and appreciation to all those involved. Yours sincerely,

Kevin McMahon

State President
