Here at Lotus People, we pride ourselves on giving back to our community and we work with a number of influential charities. We are extremely proud of our philanthropic contribution and are delighted we have been in a position to support a range of different charities.
Given the importance that we place on our work with charities, we have decided to focus our giving to one charity in particular, Oz Harvest. When we spent the day on site with Oz Harvest, we were blown away by how well they are run, how passionate their volunteers are and by how many people they reach with the work that they do. Originally set up to minimise food wastage and distribute it to those in need, the organisation has grown and expanded and does some really fantastic work with nutrition and food wastage around Australia. Since deciding to partner with Oz Harvest, the Lotus team have been down on site to partake in cooking leftover food from Woolworths that was then delivered around inner Sydney, we have hosted our own bake sale in support of the organisation and more recently, our perm team manager and I delivered a resume writing workshop to a group of young adults who are participating in OzHarvest’s nourish program – a pathway to employment for vulnerable youth. The presentation was interactive and we shared our insights and knowledge as well as providing one on one advice with their resumes.
It was such a rewarding day – we loved working with such an influential charity and I found it so fulfilling to watch the students open up and contribute, asking questions and really showing interest over the course of the day.
