Amergin Christmas Food Drive

About the Event

The Christmas season is meant to be a festive season of celebration, love and joy however for individuals impacted by financial hardship, Christmas can be a very stressful time of year. With 2020 being an unprecedented and unpredictable year for most Australians, Amergin wanted to support members of the community and help take some of the worry of putting food on the table over Christmas, away. Our staff members each contributed a selection of non-perishable food items ranging from pantry staples to "fun" food items. Together, we were able to collect a great assortment for our Christmas Food Drive and we look forward to continuing this new tradition for Amergin.

About the Organisation

Communify originated in 1978 when a small group of local residents formed the Red Hill Paddington Community Centre (RHPCC) on Caxton Street, with the purpose of providing activities, support and advocacy services for locals. In 2007, the RHPCC was renamed Communify Queensland and has continued to grow it's service and program offerings to meet the ever evolving needs of the community.

About the Event

Together with their families, most of our staff joined together one Sunday morning to venture out around Kangaroo Point as part of the Walk for Awareness. Mental health impacts us all in different ways at various points throughout our lives, and it was great to see the community supporting the central theme of the #MAFWALK; to start a conversation about mental health. We finished off the day with a lunch spread, brought along by each of our team members and with the COVID-19 restrictions easing, we enjoyed being able to physically spend time with each other for a great cause.

About the Organisation

The Walk for Awareness is an annual event designed by the Mental Awareness Foundation to help break the stigma of mental health by opening a safe and friendly dialogue around issues surrounding mental health. The #MAFWALK advocates for matters relating to suicide and self-harm being discussed openly within our community, not hidden away.

Home for Good Drive

About the Event

Home for Good was an initiative brought to Amergin's attention from Social Impact Consultant Hannah Taylor-Watkins; whose previous community sector experience has seen the positive impacts this cause provides. Together, Amergin staff collected an assortment of household kitchen items that would be used to support members of the community to build a safe home environment.

Memory Walk and Jog

  • Dementia Australia

About the Event

Dementia is a condition that hits close to home for a number of our staff members so our decision to get involved in the Memory Walk and Jog was an easy one. Christine, Aynsley, Lauren and Hannah came together to represent Amergin at this event and was inspired by the out-pouring of support for this event from other members in our community. It was heart warming to see so many people representing family members and friends at this event who were not able to attend.

About the Organisation

Presented by Dementia Australia, the Memory Walk and Jog is one of the largest annual fundraisers put together by Dementia Australia, designed to get the community moving whilst also spreading awareness about dementia. Dementia Australia provides a range of support, education and advocacy services to the estimated half a millions Australians impacted by dementia and the almost 1.6 million Australians who are involved in supporting them.

Dignity Drive

About the Event

Amergin is proud to support Share the Dignity's movement as menstruation is something all women experience and we hope that one day, along with many other women's health concerns, there is not any stigma attached to this. Amergin has always strived to empower the women we employ and our participation in community efforts such as the Dignity Drive, reinforce this within the organisation.

About the Organisation

Share the Dignity works to make a difference in the lives of those members of community experiencing homelessness, fleeing domestic violence, or doing it tough. Share the Dignity distributes period products to those in need and strives to end period poverty here in Australia by collecting thousands of sanitary items each year through collection drives and campaigns and distributing them directly to charities across Australia.
