A HUGE thank you to Allhomes for running this and to all the participating agents.

Communities@Work’s social programs provide immediate assistance to vulnerable and disadvantaged people experiencing hardship by providing services such as food, clothing and other essential services.

Communities@Work also helps get people back on their feet. For many who are unemployed, on low incomes or who have experienced a life changing event, it can be a real struggle to get back into the workforce, and the cost of suitable clothing for job interviews or to commence new employment can be huge.

Communities@Work provides people in need with free clothing, shoes and accessories for job interviews, work experience or other special events. Your donations of good quality special occasion and business clothing, shoes and accessories can also help people back on their feet and on the path to building a better future.
