We take the directive, Think Global, Act Local, quite to heart. We support CHEX because it supports local people (local taken in the broadest sense) and local businesses – it builds community :)

Make a donation
CHEX operates as part of the Uniting Harris Community Centre (Uniting NSW.ACT) and the emergency relief program. Community donations are loaded onto CHEX cards and distributed to people in hardship for them to purchase food and essentials at partnering local businesses.
Help us keep CHEX in circulation. At this stage, we can only accept direct bank transfers (details available after filling out the form below). Donations of more than AUD$2 may be tax-deductible.
