$50,000 donation to help save more lives in 2015
Release Date: 19th March 2015
Lifeline corporate supporter MAX Employment has handed a big cheque to the charity to make sure more help-seekers get through to Lifeline’s 13 11 14 crisis and suicide prevention service in 2015.
Lifeline CEO Jane Hayden took receipt of a $50,000 donation following the success of MAX Employment’s Finders Keepers campaign.
During the last three months of 2014, MAX Employment exceeded its target of finding jobs for 10,000 job-seekers in their local communities and demonstrated its practical support of the community by matching every job placed with a donation to Lifeline.
“Lifeline is experiencing funding pressure due to the continually increasing demand for our 13 11 14 and online crisis chat services.
“We rely on corporate, government and individual donations and $50,000 will go a long way toward helping us answer more calls when people need us most.
“Max Employment has proved to be a valuable partner for Lifeline with both its support for the unemployed and its financial support of Lifeline services.”
If you or someone you know is in need of crisis or suicide prevention support, please call Lifeline on 13 11 14 or visit www.lifeline.org.au/gethelp
