Mirvac’s project teams, site workers, suppliers and contractors have been busy elves for the past few months, working to raise an incredible $38,797 for homeless youth – delivering the generous donation just in time for Christmas. These funds will go towards building more bedrooms for young people in need.
Mirvac construction sites across the country joined in Hard Hat Day barbecues and afternoon teas in support of the Property Industry Foundation’s building program, The Haven Project. “Our Construction teams hosted Hard Hat Day barbecues across multiple sites, raising over $30,000” says Natalie Reilly, Mirvac Senior Project Marketing Manager – Residential. “In addition, we held afternoon teas in each state Head Office in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth. Mirvac matched the donations made by staff, so an additional $5,617 was donated.”
The Hard Hat events culminated with a special visit from the Property Industry Foundation’s CEO Kate Mills on 16 November in Sydney. “The afternoon tea was a great success!” says Natalie. “Our ‘Town Hall’ space was filled with Mirvac staff who were very engaged with the presentations and asked some great questions during the Q&A component.”
This amazing group contribution from Mirvac is reflective of the community spirit of our Hard Hat days, where construction sites fly the flag for homeless youth and chip in to make a difference. “As a leading property developer, we know we have a role to play in raising awareness of youth homelessness and in being part of the solution,” says Natalie. “Which is why we proudly support the Foundation in this worthy cause.”
