UnitingSA celebrates 100 years of support

After months in the making, our Centenary Birthday Party at Alberton, South Australia on October 19 was a huge success.

More than 700 community members, staff, clients and supporters gathered at Alberton Oval to commemorate 100 years of service to South Australians.

An official welcome was delivered by SA Minister for Child Protection, Rachel Sanderson, followed by three hours packed with free activities, food and entertainment.

The Centenary Birthday Party wraps up a year of celebrations held across UnitingSA sites in regional and metropolitan SA.

    Having been firmly entrenched in the community since 1870, Port Adelaide Football Club’s guiding mantra is simple: We Exist to Win Premierships and Make Our Community Proud.

    To deliver on this, the PAFC created an independent legal entity, Power Community Limited (PCL) which is the not for profit charity arm of the club. PCL is a Public Benevolent Institution with a Deductable Gift Recipient status that is governed by a board of directors.

    PCL has the charter to leverage the power of elite football. With this charter PCL drive real social and economic change in our community through programs that create education and employment outcomes.

    Our programs cover some of the key issues confronting young people in society; health, wellbeing and resilience, respectful relationships, cultural awareness and reconciliation, youth education pathways and retention, and employment transitions, with a Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics flavour. Programs are focused on Youth, Aboriginal and Multicultural program pillars and reach a variety of audiences including those in metropolitan Adelaide through to remote communities in South Australia and the Northern Territory.
