A 'by the community,
for the community' initiative
I just wanted to thank you guys for all the hard work and for making this possible for us. As an international student, it is great to know that we are supported somehow, especially in difficult times like this when everything is just so overwhelming. Thanks for being there for me.

The Uniting Harris Community Centre, with the support of volunteers and local community members, launched CHEX Community Gift Cards in 2020.
Our mission is to support and build a more equal, connected and sustainable community
CHEX Community Gift Cards are a form of community currency that can be used at our participating businesses. When you shop with CHEX you are supporting individuals and families, small local businesses and our community around Ultimo as a whole especially during uncertain times.

CHEX cards give community-minded folks a new way to access special offers and show appreciation for their favourite locals. They also make a great gift for any occasion – what a win-win!
CHEX is also available via our Emergency Relief service for anyone in difficulty, including international students and other temporary visa holders.
