Woodards braves the cold to help Change Lives

Members of the Woodards have spent a night sleeping rough and in the process raised more than $146,000 as part of the 2024 Vinnies CEO Sleepout. 

The Announcement: 

On the 20th of June, 45 directors, staff and business partners slept outdoors at the Timberyard in Port Melbourne for the 2024 Vinnies CEO Sleepout. 

The team experienced sleeping ‘rough’ during Winter for just one night. 

This one night will help change the lives of 120,000 Australians that experience no shelter, no warmth, no food, no friends, or family every night.

Through the support and generosity of the community, Team Woodards raised over $146,000 (making us Number 1 in Victoria). 

This is a tremendous effort and funds will go directly to assist people experiencing homelessness by supplying food vans and emergency support, as well as expanding the reach to existing Vinnies programs ensuring every Australian can access accommodation, meals and emergency assistance.

Since 2017, the Woodards Foundation has raised over $1.7 million, funding eight new soup vans that distribute food and other essentials to those in need and directly providing 912k meals to the homeless.

A percentage of every Woodards sales commission and every leasing fee is donated to our Foundation. 

The Woodards Foundation values its partnership with Vinnies and together, with the generosity of all those within our communities, we are making a difference and ‘changing lives’ for the better.
