Giveback program helps community
McGRATH Caloundra has reached a significant new milestone, donating $100,000 to more than 100 not-for-profit organisations since January 1, 2017, as part of its Community Giveback Program.
The momentous achievement was marked recently with a celebratory afternoon tea at the McGrath Caloundra office, which all beneficiary organisations were invited to attend.
McGrath Caloundra principal Jodie Hedley-Ward said community giving was at the heart of “what we do as a team” and she was looking forward to celebrating with the recipients.
As part of the program, McGrath Caloundra has helped local groups and charities achieve their own milestones, including City Edge Church which provided nutritious breakfasts to high school students at three local schools and the Sunshine Coast Animal Refuge, which have partnered with local homeless support organisations to pay for vet bills for the pets of people living on the streets.
“I think we all feel a deep desire to make this world a better place and we love working in a collaborative team environment where we get to transform lives each day,” Mrs Hedley-Ward said.
