David Yee tirelessly works in the local Newtown community with youth groups and migrant children. He welcomes, includes, and goes out of his way to make sure people are looked after. He has run the local community kids club for the last couple of years, operating out of the social housing complex, ensuring inclusiveness for all and providing Kaibosh donated food for families in need. Everyone and anyone can come. Sometimes it’s the only opportunity a mother might have to get a break. Along with the local food repurpose group, David has organised to get a donation of food to help feed the kids who turn up.
He’s spent countless hours applying for funding, organising extra hands to help, planning fun afternoons, and giving these kids an opportunity to be just that, kids. Every term, David holds a dinner at his house as well- everyone welcome. He really is one in a million. The people in Newtown appreciate all the work he has done and continues to do for our community. David is really a good sort who deserves this. He dedicates himself to helping others and thoroughly deserves to be recognised for it, not that he’d say so himself.
