Our very own Director Steve Maher, was recently named as an Ambassador for Whitelion, joining a select group of like-minded Ambassadors from around the country.
As a Whitelion Ambassador, Steve will continue to promote and support Whitelion in the western suburbs of Melbourne through a variety of charity activities to raise money, as well as creating job opportunities for vulnerable young people.
Back in August of this year, Mahercorp collectively raised over $45k for Whitelion through an 18km charity walk from Maribyrnong to Williamstown.
Each staff member was given the goal to raise $100 each through the power of ten – ask ten different people to donate ten dollars each, which staff exceeded.
The money raised by Mahercorp has been directly invested into employing an outreach worker in Wyndham, who has already been actively working with young people in the area and making a positive difference in their lives.
Since July, Whitelion have already seen 2086 young people and provided 1029 pieces of aid through their Outreach activities.Their Nutrition Outreach, Support and Health program has provided support to youth on the street with 4001 items of food in 20 locations around Australia.
We look forward to continuing our partnership with Whitelion and supporting them through future fundraising events.
