Churchill’s annual ‘Giving Back’ programme provides assistance via charitable fundraising and volunteering as well as pro bono consultancy services, to a variety of organisations in the health, arts and community sectors to support their organisational operations.
As part of our 2018 Giving Back Programme, we were proud to have recently visited the Good Samaritans head depot in Canning Vale where we sorted donations side by side with the warehouse workers.
The Churchill team saw first-hand the large-scale operation of sorting and distribution occurring at the warehouse, assisting thousands of families per year. In addition, this experience has shown us what an inspirational employer Good Samaritan Industries is.
Good Sammies Fun Facts
- Did you know that Good Samaritan’s (WA) donation recycling plant employs over 500 people, with two-thirds of these employees being a supported worker?
- Good Sammies receive over 6 million kilograms of donations annually via collection bins and centre drop-offs.
- Although the majority of the donations end up in Good Samaritan retail outlets over 2 million kilos of clothing, blankets and homewares are exported to disadvantaged counties each year.
