This holiday, Mirvac is asking their extensive community to contribute to a special Property Industry Foundation Festive Season Appeal – matching every dollar raised in support of homeless youth.
holidays can be a tough time for young people experiencing poverty, violence, relationship breakdown and insecure housing. Our friends at Mirvac are reaching out to their community to show they care. “This year Mirvac will be supporting the Property Industry Foundation by asking Mirvac employees, contractors and suppliers to donate towards the PIF Festive Season Appeal,” explains Stuart. “The donation amount could be the cost of their morning coffee or more – it is up to the individual. Mirvac is also getting behind this campaign and will match all donations contributed by our team. With over 1600 employees at Mirvac, our donations will go a long way in helping even more homeless youths find a safe place to sleep.”
“We understand that this time of year can be tough for many people. Our donations may help at-risk young people facing a crisis or escaping abuse.”
Stuart Penklis, Mirvac CEO Development
Each year, Mirvac shows up to support the Foundation’s events, fundraising and building projects. “As the nation’s largest employment sector, the property industry and its people have a role in raising awareness of youth homelessness, and in being part of the solution, which is why we continue to support the Property Industry Foundation each year,” says Stuart. “We understand that this time of year can be tough for many people. Our donations may help at-risk young people facing a crisis or escaping abuse. Hopefully by donating – of whatever amount is realistic for the individual – we can help the Foundation build bright futures for homeless youth this holiday. Simply put, by donating, we are sending a message to someone else in the community that we care.”
