Round Up to Make a Difference supports vital cancer education through Camp Quality
Officeworks ran its annual community fundraising campaign, Round Up to Make a Difference in the month of June 2021. Camp Quality was chosen as a charity beneficiary by 11 Officeworks NSW stores in Auburn, Carlton, Fairy Meadow, Five Dock, Greenacre, Lewisham, Northmead, Nowra, Punchbowl, Taren Point and Wentworthville who together raised a total of $90,000!
Customers were able to make a direct donation with or without an Officeworks purchase. 100% of donations went to helping Camp Quality bring their vital Primary School Cancer Education Program into schools around Australia. The program is designed to dispel harmful cancer myths and provide a supportive community for kids returning to school after their own diagnosis or facing the diagnosis of a loved one. The program is proven to reduce bullying and days absent from school.*
In the lead up and throughout the month of June, Camp Quality mascots Giggle and the Puppets visited the Officeworks stores to say hello and give thanks to the amazing staff.
Throughout the month of June, all 11 stores have hosted different activities and found creative ways to share more about Camp Quality and raise funds.
On 19 June, Officeworks Taren Point hosted a Fun Day for their community organising a BBQ and face painting to raise extra funds for Camp Quality.
A Camp Quality family were able to join in on the fun-filled day and Officeworks generously donated a big hamper with arts and crafts supplies for the family.
All Officeworks staff have worked hard to raise funds, and with the generous support from the community, a total of $90,000 raised for Camp Quality’s Primary School Cancer Education Program.
This will go to support 75 primary schools and have an impact of over $450,000 of social return on investment.*
A huge thank you to all Officeworks staff and the community for supporting the campaign.
