Dignity in the Bag - 2017 & 2018
Solar Smiles Dental Charity is delighted to be able to give yearly support to the project Share the Dignity by supplying toothbrushes and toothpaste for the bags contributed by Rotary Club of Albert Park.
Lakeside House - Port Melbourne
In June 2018, Solar Smiles Dental Charity was delighted to be able to give support to the project Lakeside House by supplying toothbrushes and toothpaste for the set up of the facility as a part of the Rotary Club of Albert Park.
Women over 55 currently sleeping rough or in severe housing stress will be able to seek shelter in new pop-up accommodation in Melbourne’s City of Port Phillip. The aged care facility known as Lakeside House, operated by CaSPA Care, was vacant awaiting master planning for redevelopment. The goal is to use the building in the interim to provide housing for women.
This has been managed by Robert Pradolin, a past member of Rotary Albert Park and a property developer, who has used his contacts in the building industry to install a brand new kitchen, cleaned up the garden area and organised brand new lounge chairs.
Rotary Albert Park has been involved with the wonderful help of Donations In Kind in providing all linen, dressing gowns, toiletries, as well as supplying bookshelves and books.
