More information about us

Community Support Frankston Inc. is a not for profit community support agency which provides services including emergency food, grocery vouchers, help with utility bills, referrals and advocacy for people who live, or work in the City of Frankston.

CSF is one of the busiest agencies of its type in Victoria - with around 12,000 people contacting the organisation for assistance each year. Find more information about this agency, volunteering and services we offer on our Home Page.

We are seeking cash donations to buy non-perishable groceries so we can put together 200 festive hampers – each with over $80 value. If you would like to donate or have a fundraising idea, please contact us so we can acknowledge your involvement on our website, Facebook page and Annual Report.

This is an opportunity to:

  • Support the work of our volunteers by helping us raise funds
  • Help disadvantaged people in our neighbourhood
  • Get involved with supporting frankstons most disadvantaged

Community Support Frankston works in conjunction with:

  • Frankston emergency relief providers (FERP) Network
  • Operation Larder
  • SalvoCare Eastern
  • WAYSS Domestic Violence Outreach
  • St Vincent de Paul (Frankston based clusters)
  • DHHS Frankston

The above agencies are part of a network that distribute the hampers purchased by CSF through your donations. Clients receiving support are all assessed to be in crisis and in need of assistance.

We all work together, with one point for hamper distribution which:

  • Enables us to stretch our combined limited resources
  • Assists more families through fairer allocation of donations
  • Allows other organisations to focus on other festive activities like free Christmas breakfast and lunch to residents in hardship.

2015 was the 25th year of the appeal and a record 573 hampers with food and gifts distributed to local families and people living alone. These hampers were put together using:
