About Te Atatu Memorial RSA
The culture of the Te Atatu Memorial RSA is outward looking. Pride is justifiably taken in the club’s active commitment to the national motto of “People Helping People” and its active status in the local community. The club has an ongoing record of financial support to a wide range of worthy local causes, which has worked substantially to enhance the external image of the club.
Early history records our financial support for youth to attend Outward Bound Courses and Charm courses. Support of youth activities continues to a major extent. We sponsor exchange visits with Australian RSL youth groups. Participants are selected from children and grandchildren of members.
Youth sports groups, army cadets, local school and kindergarten projects in the area enjoy financial support from the Te Atatu RSA. We sponsor and fund scholarships at Rutherford College. We regularly support the local Food Bank, and organisations such as the Arthritis Foundation, Barnardos and the Salvation Army. Some $15,000 has been donated to these causes in the first nine months of this current financial year. Donations are made from Gaming machine proceeds, profits from other club activities and straight out fund raising such as the Christmas Raffles.The Women’s section is also very active in this area. Our members are collectively very generous in their support of all these enterprises.
