Vinnies Victoria is immensely proud of our ongoing and thriving partnership with Woodards Real Estate.
Vinnies Victoria Group CEO, Sue Cattermole summarises Woodards’ unique support: “The St Vincent de Paul Society Victoria is so grateful for the ongoing support of the Woodards Foundation, which is always on the lookout for new and innovative ways to support our charity. And last year they found just that – opening a Community Bookstore in Hawthorn during December.”
The bookshop raised $3,582 for Vinnies, adding to their $12,000 end of year donation, with all funds going towards providing 1,300 hampers over the Christmas period and supporting individuals and families in need through our Vinnies Soup Van Operation.
Not only that, more than 100 Woodards employees volunteered their time in the bookshop over December. What a wonderful example of business and charity working together helping to build compassionate communities.
