The FSC Women’s Football Council helped raise vital funds for the Supported Accommodation & Homeless Support Shoalhaven and Illawarra Service (SAHSSI) at last weekend’s charity round.
SAHSSI is a not for profit service which helps support women and children experiencing domestic violence.
They provide crisis accommodation, support services as well as transitional housing and an outreach service.
With close to 3000 women and girls playing football around the Illawarra across all age groups, Football South Coast felt it was an important cause to support.
“Each year the Women’s Football Council uses a competition round to raise funds for some important and worthy causes and last year the Women’s Competition raised funds to support to the Leukemia Foundation,” Football South Coast chief executive Ann-Marie Balliana explains.
“This year funds raised will be used by SAHSSI to purchase clothing, toiletries, school supplies and other essential items for women with children that have been faced with domestic violence to assist them re-establish homes in the community.”
Special thanks to Sandy Depers for organising the event.
