Coming Together

Although 2020 has presented us all with an array of challenges, it has also given us the opportunity to reflect on what is really important – such as community. When we come together, we can achieve amazing things, which has been evident in so many ways here at the Riverwood Community Centre.

There are so many people working tirelessly to help others and make the community better, even if that means checking in on a friend or neighbour. So, thank you.

On that note, we wanted to highlight a few of the positive things that have been happening here at RCC over the last two weeks.


The dedication of volunteers, such as those from Our Lady of Fatima Parish Peakhurst and St Ursula’s College Kingsgrove, has meant that the One Meal program has been able to continue on Monday nights throughout the year. Proving a hot meal, supplies and support to people in the community.


The St Vincent De Paul Capacity Building Project graciously provided RCC with the Xtra Eyes, Sensory Tent and Escape the Noise packs. These are fantastic resources that will be used across the organisation, especially in the Long Day Care and OOSH, to ensure that all children have the opportunity to feel comfortable and get involved.


Recently the Mother Maria of Paris Greek Orthodox Mission, volunteer Mrs Englezos, nutritionist Jenny Hantzopoulos and RCC were able to work together to prepare and deliver 30 healthy meals as part of the Youth Outreach program.


This week a grant of $10,000 was presented to RCC by MP Mark Coure. This funding from the Multicultural Celebrating Diversity Project will be used for the We Stand Together Project. Which will allow five workshops to be run for recent arrivals and Aboriginal people to build awareness and pride about how we live, important changes in our society and highlight services available.

“Proudly delivering accessible, high quality
services in our community since 1974”
