Legacy Week, Knox boys get involved

01-Sep-2011

Legacy Week is the annual national appeal to raise awareness and funds for the families of our deceased Veterans. It is held in towns and cities big and small across Australia and supported by young and old. A number of Knox boys will participate in Legacy Day selling badges at local rail stations Friday, 2 September.

The funds raised from Legacy Week help Legacy continue to assist over 100,000 widows and 1,900 children and people with disabilities Australia-wide, with essential services such as, counselling, special housing, medical, advocacy and social support.

Public support will also help Legacy nurture children’s education, by contributing towards their school fees, books, uniforms, and recreational activities to aid their self development and confidence.

There are thousands of Australian Defence Force personnel currently deployed overseas. Legacy stands ready to assist their families should the worst happen.

You too can help keep the promise by becoming a volunteer or donor. All funds raised will help continue Legacy's essential role in the community.
