Innisfail Youth and Family Care CEO Anita Laksa said it was a generous donation and would allow the organisation to continue to provide facilities and support for vulnerable young people in the Innisfail

“We greatly appreciate the support of Curtis Pitt and the wider community in supporting the Innisfail Youth Shelter,” Mrs Laksa said.

“With the money raised from the Labour Day Bowls Day, we will be able to replace and upgrade the security screens on the downstairs bedroom of the Shelter, therefore providing increased security to the young people staying at the Youth Shelter.”
