Chicken dinner's a winner

Chicken dinner’s a winner

Who better to have round for dinner than the company behind KFC and Sizzler? On Thursday, 4 February the Wooloowin Share House shared a meal with the Chief Financial Officer, members of the Workplace Giving Committee and Store Managers from Collins Foods Limited (CFL) who have been supporting Youngcare since 2008 through their workplace giving program.

The simple motto underpinning CFL’s program, “A dollar will do and 50 cents is fine”, has empowered over 57% of employees to donate through payroll giving, which is generously matched by the organisation.

“Collins Foods is extremely proud to support Youngcare and its quest for young people to live young lives. There’s great energy around Sizzler & KFC Restaurants within Queensland to support the Workplace Giving Program and the current participation rate of 57% is growing,” Paul Allen, KFC Area Manager and Workplace Giving Committee Member, Collins Foods Limited said.

“The recent house visit to Wooloowin from the Collins Group family was extremely moving and it was wonderful to meet all the residents and carers (including Boosta the house friendly dog)! It’s great to actually see how the funds from our team enable a positive change to others’ lives. Well Done Youngcare and CFL!

A small amount given regularly by a number of people can have a big impact, enabling Youngcare to continue to deliver on mission.

Have you considered supporting Youngcare through workplace giving? Not only is it a tax effective way of supporting the causes you love, it also makes for great conversations in the lunch room!
