Community awareness

Our commitment to the community – we think beyond super

Over 70 years of listening and understanding means we’re looking out for you, your family and your community’s needs and wellbeing.

We support our staff to support the community by:

  • volunteering
  • fund raising events, and
  • special appeals.

Our Community Awareness Program sees our employees volunteer on work time to help out local charities and raise funds for special appeals close to their heart.

As at December 2013 staff have raised over $84,000 for a number of local and national charities, with Mine Wealth + Wellbeing often dollar matching fundraising efforts dollar for dollar.

In December 2013 Mine Wealth + Wellbeing helped to spread a little Christmas cheer to children under the care of Allambi Youth Services, which provides disability services, foster care and respite in Newcastle, the Central Coast and Hunter region. Mine Wealth + Wellbeing donated a number of gifts and $50 Coles/Myer gift vouchers, which ensured the children received at least one gift on Christmas Day.

We've also recently raised funds for:

  • Relay for Life
  • Dry July
  • Opera to Parliament bike ride for Lymphoma Australia
  • Dog Rescue Newcastle
  • Stress Down Day
  • Movember
  • Thompsons Pie Drive for the Special Needs Classes (Shortland Public School)
  • Fijian Tie Drive
  • Soul Café  - food drive.
