Hard Hat Days for easier futures for homeless youth
The property and construction industry held Hard Hat activities and events throughout the month of August to raise funds for homeless youth. However, it does not end there, events and activities are extending all the way into November.
Across the country, St Hilliers sites and offices came together to participate in Hard Hat with a smorgasbord of pizza parties and barbeque lunches. In addition to raising $2,536 the team at St Hilliers created wonderful opportunities for their subcontractors, suppliers, clients and staff to get together and chat over a bite to eat.
Lloyd Group along with its clients and subcontractors held its first Hard Hat BBQ at The International Maarif Schools of Australia: Gallipoli Campus construction site this year.
With the support of sponsors Proview Scaffolding and Just SkipsHeld, Lloyd Group provided food and beverages to all workers and raised $1,200.
Dennis Family Corporation
Keeping their Hard Hat Day tradition alive for nearly 15 years, the Dennis Family Corporation held their annual Hard Hat Day for homelessness youth in a flexible in-person or via zoom morning. This year, the tea was extra sweet with a total of $13,000 raised!
The Aurecon Group held a BBQ and gold coin donation in the office for Hard Hat Day. Well done to the team of volunteers who coordinated a fantastic lunch!
AVID Property Group
AVID Property Group has built on it’s support of the Foundation to host a Hard Hat event this year. In addition to participating in this year’s Golf Day, winning the Foundation Regatta, and coming along to our 25th Anniversary dinner, the team at AVID are doing their bit to raise funds for homeless youth.
Property Council of Australia
Thank you to the team at PCA for hosting our CEO Kate Mills and our National Stakeholder Engagement Manager, Claudia Ferrari at a national Hard Hat morning tea and a roundtable about youth homelessness. It was a great opportunity to speak to staff across all the state on zoom and of course eat some scrumptious baked goods.
Rider Levett Bucknall
Rider Levett Bucknall held a hybrid tea and Hard Hat glam off! Taking ordinary site hard hats and crafting them into something that would for sure stick out on any site.
Chalouhi is hosting the Chalouhi Golden Bucket Raffle for the second year in a row through August and September. While close to $5,000 in amazing raffle prizes has been on the line for weeks, amazingly, there’s still time to snake a ticket and go on the draw to win the bundled golden bucket major prize.
