The Father Bob Maguire Foundation was founded by, you guessed it, the incomparable Aussie legend Father Bob. If you haven’t heard of him, give him a Google, or watch the fantastic doco made about him from a few years ago, In Bob We Trust.
The foundation was started in 2003, and the mission is simple; to provide material, emotional and social support to whomever, whenever and wherever necessary.
The role of the Foundation is to realise Father Bob’s vision of ending homelessness and disadvantage. They facilitate the establishment of a caring community, by the community, for the community, striving to give all kids a fair start to life and everyone a fair go. All have the right to be nourished physically, mentally and emotionally, and these guys do their best to fulfil this through a variety of activities, services and initiatives.
From offering community meals through their HopeMobiles, to aiding education through funding, tutoring and mentoring, to nurturing innovation to alleviate homelessness and the aid the needy and disadvantaged.
There’s a variety of ways you can lend a hand – so head to their website to learn more about the projects these guys have going, and how you can get involved.
Whether you can spare a few dollars, donate some time or skills, or even just help spread the word, as always, every little bit helps.
