“We first heard about VincentCare, Ozanam House and The Ozanam Community Centre in 2010 when we carried out a community project there,” says Coco Pinnis, Project Manager - Group Initiatives at Probuild. Probuild is one of Australia's largest construction companies. Since 1987, the company has grown to become a nationally diversified company with more than 750 employees.
“We’re passionate about leaving a positive impact on the communities we operate in,” says Coco. “We actively support our staff to collaborate with and give back to the communities we work in. We do this by providing an avenue for staff to volunteer in the community or donate through Workplace Giving.”
“Since that initial contact we’ve slowly built up the number of staff volunteering in the kitchen with the food service at Ozanam House. Currently we have 35 Probuild staff involved, carrying out two or three shifts per month.”
Probuild’s ProCommunity Victoria team focuses on assisting Not For Profit organisations that specifically address homelessness, the built environment or education and are relatively small, so they can create a greater impact Coco explains.
“There are many possible interesting synergies between a construction company and a specialist homeless service. What we find works really well is our annual community project, in which we do a project over two weekends. Probuild staff complete the works and our subcontractors donate the materials. Past projects have been for VincentCare, McCauley Community Services for Women, Noble Park English Language School in conjunction with The Song Room, Ascot Vale Special School and this year the Children’s Protection Society in West Heidelberg.”
The support and volunteer hours provided by our corporate volunteers like Probuild is invaluable to the work of VincentCare Victoria.
