$700 - to assist a disadvantaged young person to purchase furniture and appliances
$1000 - to fund two years of vocational courses and increase the employability of a disengaged young person
$5000 - to provide six months of food and crisis housing for a homeless person
$11,000 - to fund an afterschool program for a disadvantaged community for a year
