Summit helps the homeless
Here at Summit Homes Group we support the community we build in as part of our “Built Around People” commitment, which is why we often get involved in fundraising events for a number of charities and appeals.
Community Newspaper Group along with with radio station 6PR joined forces to promote the "Sox n Jox Appeal", which urged people to donate new socks and underwear for men, women and children to Community Newspaper Group offices throughout Perth. As well as raising awareness, the "Sox n Jox Appeal" was created to provide real help to those in need as part of Homelessness Week, which ran from August 1-7.
After reading a story about the Sox n Jox Appeal in her local newspaper, receptionist Samantha De Freitas organized a donation drive within Summit's head office for the appeal. With some help from her reception team, she encouraged staff members to contribute new socks and underwear for donation.
"It was great to see so many people support this worthwhile cause and to personally deliver our donation last Friday," Samantha said.
