Junee BRANCH

Murrumbidgee Region

Assisting our community, locally…

ABOUT US

Can Assist Junee was formed in 1991. Our branch is dedicated to supporting anyone in the Junee Local Government area affected by cancer. We understand that following a cancer diagnosis, clients can struggle with the associated medical costs. We are able to do this through wonderful volunteers giving their time to raise much needed funds. Our aim is to maintain that all funds raised local remains local. Supporting Junee Can Assist is vital for our community, through donating money or volunteering time to make our fund-raising events a success.

Areas Serviced: Bethungra, Dirnaseer, Erin Vale, Eurongilly, Harefield, Junee, Junee Reefs, Marinna, Marrar, Nangus, Old Junee, Wantabadgerry, Wantiool, Yathella

Financial Assistance

We understand that families struggle to cope with a reduced income as a result of a cancer diagnosis and that they face increased expenses from travel, accommodation and medical costs.
