Our success is linked to the success of our local community. It is our commitment to do things that are good for people, the society and the environment.
With the holidays fast approaching, Steel-Line is hosting a gift collection at our head office to provide homeless children and young people with basic necessities. Through the “Make a Difference” charity, our team members are getting together to show our support and make a contribution to our community. One simple act of generosity can go a long way for the young people going through a tough time right now, and any donation, big or small, would show them that they are still cared for and are valued members of our society.
This year’s Steel-Line blood donation event kicked off on September 26th in our Darra head office. Five of our team members (Christian, Jo, Darcy, Shaun and Ryan) rolled up their sleeves and generously donated their blood to people who needed it. 1 in 3 Australians will require blood at some point in their life. That means one day, someone we love might depend on it. Every donation may save three lives. We are so proud of our Steel-Line heroes. A big thank you to the Australian Red Cross Blood Service for helping us to save 15 lives through our blood donation.
