The House With No Steps Transition to Work program recived donated bus
Roland DG, with the support of Professional Advantage, Avery Graphics, Graphic Art Mart, HMH Australia, Visual Industries Suppliers Association, Conect Enterprises, Yarhamville, Sign Essentials, Superfish Holdings, Andrew Ireland, and Camarg, have donated a bus to The House With No Steps Transition to Work program.
The staff at Roland DG generously donated money from their wages, which was matched dollar for dollar by the company. Within 3 months they were able to generate $10,000. With this money at hand, the company approached The House With No Steps to see how they could make a difference for the charity. On top of the charities ‘wish list’ was a bus to transport members of the Transition to Work program to and from various locations.
The Transition to Work Program aims to achieve employment for young people with a disability. The program operates over two years for each individual and develops the skills and/or qualifications needed by these young people to secure and sustain employment. However since the program began in 2007, they have had major problems transporting team members to and from work and training.
After realizing what a big task it was for Roland to raise the money alone, Roland DG approached the aforementioned companies, who kindly donated the remainder of funds needed to buy the bus.
The bus was presented to the House with No Steps, and the members of the Transition to Work Program at an official ‘hand over’ ceremony held at Roland DG’s head office in Frenchs Forest. Roland DG General Manager Marc Margetts, along with staff and sponsors were there to hand over the keys, and watch the guys go for their first drive in the bus.
