“At Built we are committed to giving back to the community and making a positive impact on the lives of youth in need.”

Emily Harrison, Built

Six Built volunteers put their hand up for a workerbee to tidy up the garden of Haven House Coburg, a transitional home run by the Lighthouse Foundation. Their hard work directly benefits young mums at risk of homelessness and their young children. “Through the Property Industry Foundation, we were partnered with the Lighthouse Foundation to contribute to the goal of making a house a home for young mums at risk of homelessness,” says Emily Harrison, New Business & Estimating Administrator, Built. “We got our hands dirty weeding, trimming, replanting, and mulching the gardens. With the help of the knowledgeable Plantmark volunteers, we transformed the outdoor space into a safe, tidy and welcoming environment for the young parents and their children.”

The day flew by with many hands making light work. “The mood among our team was one of enthusiasm, purpose, and a shared commitment to making a positive difference,” shares Emily. “We were fortunate enough to meet a few of the young mums and their families and it was heartwarming to see their reactions to our work throughout the day. Overall, a great day out for the team leaving us all feeling very fulfilled and satisfied! We would wholeheartedly encourage anyone in the industry to consider joining a Property Industry Foundation workerbee! It’s a chance to use your skills and resources to create positive change on the lives of these vulnerable individuals and to witness firsthand the amazing support their partner charities offer.”
