Give­back pro­gram helps com­mu­nity

Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - LIFE -

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.
