MAX Employment and The Smith Family have come together to help break the cycle of disadvantage in the lives of disadvantaged young Australians and their families.

There were smiles all around The Smith Family office last week when MAX Employment dropped by to present a cheque for $25,000 after the success of their yearly MAX Finders Keepers campaign.

The MAX Finders Keepers campaign set out to find 10,000 jobs for Australian job seekers between October and December last year. For every job filled during the campaign, MAX Employment donated $10 to one of three charities – The Smith Family, the Wirrpanda Foundation and Lifeline – totalling an amazing $100,000 in donations.

MAX Employment Managing Director Deborah Homewood said the effects of finding a job extend far beyond the campaign.

“Employment changes job seekers lives, and the lives of their families. They can put a roof over their families’ heads, provide healthy food and give their loved ones the support they need.

“These benefits have a ripple effect, impacting not only the job seeker, but their support networks and wider community,” Ms Homewood said.

The Smith Family CEO Dr Lisa O’Brien welcomed MAX Employment’s generous donation of $25,000 and commended their annual MAX Finders Keepers campaign.

“This campaign has demonstrated an innovative approach to fundraising and we greatly appreciate being among its beneficiaries,” Dr O’Brien said.

“Donations made to The Smith Family help us support many thousands of children who are living in financial disadvantage to participate in education.

"Around 1 in 10 Australian children are living in disadvantage, with no adult working in the household. That places enormous financial pressure on the family.

“Investing in a child’s education today delivers long-term positive benefits for them, their families and community. Most importantly, it can empower them into their working life and help them break the cycle of disadvantage.”

Finders Keepers is an annual campaign run by MAX Employment from October to December. This year the campaign saw 10,262 people placed into work, with $25,000 being donated to The Smith Family and the Wirrpanda Foundation, and $50,000 donated to Lifeline.
