HICCI says thanks

Healesville Interchurch Community Care Inc (HICCI) would like to sincerely thank the local community for the generous donations they received for Christmas. All gifts are equally appreciated and even more special this year considering the ongoing impact of the Covid-19 Pandemic. Your generosity has truly made a difference.

HICCI is here to help people in Healesville, Yarra Glen and surrounds who need practical support. This may be people who have never needed assistance, but whose circumstances may have changed. For more information and support, phone 5911 6000
