How does CHSN assist the community?

It was the hard work of CHSN that helped create Gympie Community Gardens along with Cooinda Aged Care Centre and Queensland Health. CHSN auspiced Gympie Community Garden so we could receive funding only available to incorporated organisations. Not only has CHSN provided financial management of funds, but supported the project through promotion of events to their comprehensive database and with members physically helping and attending major events. Thank you.
