  • REIWA’s Annual Mother’s Day Appeal helps WA women in need

    New


    On 2 May, REIWA hosted a morning tea for staff members and Salvation Army representatives, to recognise Mother’s Day and donate gifts towards The Salvation Army Perth Women's Refuge.

    The Salvos’ Women’s Refuge offers accommodation and services for women in need of assistance due to domestic violence and/or homelessness.

    REIWA CEO Neville Pozzi said he was delighted the Institute and its staff could give back to the community through its 8th Annual Women’s Refuge Mother’s Day Appeal, which invites REIWA staff to donate personal items, such as toiletries and pyjamas, to the women at the refuge.

    “Our staff members are a generous bunch, and I’m pleased to see everyone dig deep and help make a difference to the women at the refuge. These small items, which many of us take for granted, can make the world of difference to the comfort of these women in need. I’m really proud we can do our bit to help them,” Mr Pozzi said.

    At the morning tea, REIWA staff were given an insight into the Women’s Refuge and how it assists women in need by guest speaker Captain Naava Brooks.

    The donated gifts were presented to the Salvos at the morning tea and will be given to the women at the refuge for Mother’s Day on 14 May.

    “These gifts are so much more than just every day home comforts, to the women in our centre they will mean the world because someone cared enough to make their Mother’s Day a special day to remember. That’s a powerful message for our women and we are greatly appreciative of the support REIWA staff have given,” said Captain Naava Brooks.

    The appeal is part of REIWA’s broader Community REInvest philanthropic program, through which REIWA real estate agents identify opportunities, mobilise resources and support the people of WA, particularly the homeless.

    As part of this program, REIWA will be partnering with the Salvos for their upcoming Red Shield and Sleeping Bag Appeals.
