YMA (Australia) Makes Donation to Families of Bushfire Victims
YMA held a fundraiser event to assist two young families that were struck by tragedy during the Australian bushfires. Volunteer firefighters Geoffrey Keaton and Andrew O’Dwyer died when the truck they were driving hit a fallen tree and overturned. Both left young children under two years old. The firefighters were part of the crew who look after YMA’s head office community in Wetherill Park, NSW, and YMA staff were eager to donate. YMA also chipped in, which resulted in $10,000 being raised for each family.
