Lighthouse Community Services
LCS being the parent body that oversees Canungra Op Shop, we are able to contribute towards the main fundraising goal, which is housing for victims of Domestic Violence.
Needs in Canungra
Canungra is a lovely township with friendly people, a wide variety of cafes and interesting shops to explore. We have had the opportunity to help the local Canungra Owls Soccer club to buy equipment, the Canungra Swimming Pool to be supplied with a Defibrilator (which we hope is never needed but is there just in case), and also give assistance to local families in crisis due to unemployment, health crisis or homelessness.
Wings of Hope
This wonderful group of professionals are working to roll out effective education programs to help our youth realise the life-destroying potential of the drug, Ice. While currently working as volunteers, they are seeking Government funding so they can more effectively work to save our youth.
Current statistics show that EVERY day, 27 young people (age 15-24) are becoming regular/addicted Ice users. You can become a donor here:
Long-time Tamborine Mountain resident and devoted charity worker, Betty Pugh, has for many years been working selling 2nd hand items to raise money for our battling farmers out west. We have in the past been able to contribute to some of Betty’s postage costs to remote areas, and Betty contributed much to help our shop get up and running in its early days.
