About Us

COMMUNITY

Merrylands RSL remains a strong supporter of the Holroyd community, touching the lives of many people. The club supports a wide array of organisations ranging from medical research, health, local sporting groups, community services, local schools, and supports initiatives for Australia’s servicemen and women.

Homes for Heroes
Merrylands RSL and Sub Branch will be providing a contribution of over $33,000 to the Homes for Heroes program as part of our three year commitment supporting the program. The program was established with the aim of providing safe and secure accommodation as well as rehabilitation services to returned veterans and their families if they are homeless. All funds will help see a decrease in homeless veterans out on the streets.
