ILS Charity Partnership Program:
Volunteering offers vital help to people in need, worthwhile causes and the community.
We believe that the benefits can be even greater for the volunteer. Volunteering and helping
others can help reduce stress, combat depression, keep our employees mentally stimulated,
and provide a sense of purpose. While it’s true that the more a person volunteers the more
benefit they experience, volunteering doesn’t have to involve a long-term commitment, or
take a huge amount of time out of our busy days. Giving, in even simple ways, can help
those in need and improve our health and happiness.
ILS would like to spotlight each of our chosen charities for a Quarter
every year throughout our organisation.
OzHarvest is Australia’s leading food rescue organisation, collecting quality excess food from commercial outlets and delivering it directly to more than 1000 charities supporting people in need across the country. Founded in 2004 by Ronni Kahn, after noticing the huge volume of good food going to waste from the hospitality industry, she decided there had to be a better way. Starting in Sydney with one van – the first of many donations from Goodman + Foundation – she delivered 4,000 meals in the first month.
