Building our Community – Our Charity & Fundraising Efforts so far for 2024

At SJD Homes, we believe in building more than just houses; we believe in building communities. Our commitment to supporting the local community through various charity and fundraising initiatives reflects our dedication to making a positive impact. Here’s a look at the charitable work we’ve done so far this year.

Sammy’s Community Pantry

Located at Giving it a Second Chance, Pakenham, Sammy’s Community Pantry is one of our proud partners. Through food donations, we help provide essential groceries to those in need, ensuring no one in our community goes hungry.

Myeloma Australia

Dry July & Nike Marathon (Miles for Myeloma)
At SJD Homes, Myeloma is a cause close to our hearts, making our fundraising efforts for this cause extra special. Over 20 staff members are participating in Dry July, raising money for Myeloma research and support. In October, around 35 of our staff will join the Nike Melbourne Marathon as part of our dedicated team, Miles for Myeloma. Our team is already training hard, with participants running various distances from 10km to the full 42km marathon. These events not only help raise crucial funds but also bring our team together in support of a cause that means a lot to us.

Tree Planting Initiative – Beaconsfield Recreation Reserve

In a joint effort with Friends of Cardinia Creek Sanctuary, Cardinia Council, and Parklea, SJD Homes supported revegetation works at the Beaconsfield Recreation Reserve. With 25 volunteers, we planted over 500 plants, including Prickly Ti-tree, Woolly Tea Tree, Hop Goodenia, and Common Tussock Grass, contributing to the local ecosystem.

Frankie’s Community Kitchen

We are partnering with Frankies Community Kitchen in Warragul to prepare wholesome meals. These meals are donated to charities and outreach organizations that distribute them to those in need within the community. This initiative runs from July to September, with our team actively involved in food prepping.

Ride 2 School – 3 Peaks Challenge

The participation of one of our staff members in the Ride 2 School initiative saw him raise over $1000. The challenge involved a gruelling 235km ride with over 4,500 meters of climbing, including Tawonga Gap, Mount Hotham, and back up to Falls Creek.

Cornerstone Membership – Cardinia Foundation

As a Cornerstone Member of the Cardinia Foundation, we have pledged to donate $10,000 each year for the next three years. This significant contribution helps support various local initiatives and charities.
