Sydney â€“ Last month, Seton Australia, a workplace safety products supplier invited its customers to participate in a short survey to provide suggestions on how Seton can service their customers better. Upon completion of the survey, Seton customers could choose one of 3 reward options. One of these options was for Seton to donate $20 to the Salvoâ€™s Youth Foundation, the Salvation Army's major response to youth homelessness in Australia. Seton had an overwhelming response for the donation option and thanks to the generosity of Seton customers, $9,880 was raised.
Seton increased this amount and donated a massive $10,000 to the Salvoâ€™s Youth Foundation on Wednesday 24th April, at the Seton head office in Sydney. Esther Savvas, Managing Director, Seton Australia, said, â€œWeâ€™re so pleased that so many of our wonderful Seton customers chose the option to donate to such a worthy cause, this wouldnâ€™t have been possible without their support.â€
The $10,000 cheque was presented by Setonâ€™s Managing Director, Esther Savvas and Setonâ€™s Marketing Manager, Tony Andoniou to John Harris, Captain Nesan Kistan and Bianca Orsini from The Salvation Army. John Harris, Territorial Youth Liaison Officer said, â€œI was so totally moved, surprised, humbled and so very, very grateful of the $10,000 donation your team presented us. To have this investment just filled me with hope and to stand in front of all those people and be presented with this gift was beautiful. I look forward to sharing with you where and what we intend to use this donation for and provide back to your customers updates to how their generosity helped us change livesâ€.
The donation will go towards programs that offer critical points of intervention and support for homeless and disadvantaged young people between 16 and 24 years of age. These support services include; counselling, crisis and transitional accommodation, legal support, accredited workplace training, education and vocational opportunities. On any given night, the Salvoâ€™s Youth Foundation also helps to accommodate and feed more than 100 homeless young people.
