ILS Charity Partnership Program
“ When we walk a mile in the moccasins of a less fortunate soul, our lives become instantly enriched. ”
Through the Independent Living Specialists (ILS) Charity Partnership Program, ILS supports multiple charities throughout the year. This offers all their employees the opportunity to use their paid days off to participate in a fundraising activity with the ILS’s chosen charities and all proceeds are donated to the charities.
Volunteering offers vital help to people in need, worthwhile causes and the community.
ILS believes 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, providing a sense of purpose. The act of giving not only helps the recipient but also is known to improve the health and happiness of the giver.
Through the ILS Charity Partnership Program, ILS is very proud to have raised more than $11,590 for the following charities over the past 2 years: OzHarvest, Youth off the street, Cerebral Palsy Alliance and the Australian Cervical Cancer Foundation.
In the year 2020, ILS will support and raise funds and awareness for the following charities – Australian Red Cross, Youngcare and Save Our Sons. ILS would like to take this opportunity to thank all their wonderful customers for the support and generosity they have shown previously.
A little help goes a long way.
