Adelaide Crows AFL Club superstars Andrew McLeod and Nigel Smart joined MAX Employment Director Fiona Lamb last week to accept a donation of $25,000 in celebration of the success of the 2015 MAX campaign, 15,000 Stars for Christmas.
The three month jobs drive aimed to place 15,000 job seekers into work by Christmas Eve, with MAX pledging to donate a total of $100,000 to four Australian charities as part of the campaign.
Ms. Lamb said that the $25,000 donation will go towards Indigenous programs run by the Adelaide Crows Children’s Foundation
, supporting the Foundation’s work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children throughout South Australia.
“The Adelaide Crows Children’s Foundation works tirelessly with students, families and schools to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children. We are thrilled to be able to donate to the Foundation to continue supporting their work,”
Ms Lamb said.
“15,000 Stars aimed to not only find people work for Christmas, but support organisations that help the people we meet every day, from vulnerable youth, to Indigenous Australians, war veterans, and victims of domestic violence.
“We are proud to support the work the Adelaide Crows Children’s Foundation do in their community, and would like to thank Andrew, Nigel and the Foundation for their support throughout the campaign,”
Ms Lamb said.
The 15,000 Stars for Christmas campaign placed 15,939 in three months, with $100,000 in donations going towards the Adelaide Crows Children’s Foundation, Mates4Mates

and the Luke Batty Foundation
