$79,000 to Mercy Health Foundation Breast Milk Bank

Next in our series of donation updates since the start of 2020 is this huge contribution to the life saving work being done by Mercy Health. The Mercy Breast Milk Bank has been vital in saving the lives of sick new born and premature babies from all across Victoria.

The Mercy Breast Milk Bank has needed support to renew it’s equipment to sterilise and store donated breast milk. The bulk of this donation went towards a $75,000 pasteurizing machine. To the 1000+ FRV firefighters and staff who contribute to the Firefighters Charity Fund, thank you for your generosity.
