METRICON HOMES TO MATCH EVERY DOLLAR DONATION MADE TO OLIVIA’S PLACE IN NOVEMBER

Metricon Homes is joining forces with local not-for-profit organisation, Olivia’s Place, to help support new and expectant parents in need across Gippsland.

During the month of November, Metricon and HomeSolution by Metricon, will match every dollar donation made to Olivia’s Place, with a goal to support more than 15 Gippsland families every week for an entire year by raising $15,000.

Metricon’s Gippsland Manager, Jeff Telford, says Metricon is proud to support Olivia’s Place and the important work they do in the Gippsland community: “Just like building your dream home, welcoming a new baby into your family should be an exciting time, not a stressful one. That’s why we are proud to support Olivia’s Place and the difference they make in the lives of many young, local families.

"This year has been challenging for many families. We encourage those who are in the position to do so to please make a donation to Olivia’s Place during November, so together we can help the incredible team at Olivia’s Place maintain the important work they do.

“For every dollar the community donates, we will give a dollar. For example, a $25 donation will effectively be $50.”

Olivia’s Place was established in 2012 by Kirsten Finger and Melissa Raymond, with a mission to support new and expectant parents during pregnancy and the first year of their child’s life, through community engagement and the provision of resources, education and professional services.

“For families experiencing hardship, raising children is like sailing in rough waters; Olivia’s Place provides them with the lighthouse and safe harbour they need to navigate these rough waters,” says Olivia’s Place co-founder Kirsten Finger.

“However, we would not be able to do this without the generosity of the local community and local businesses like Metricon. Coronavirus restrictions have significantly impacted many of our usual fundraising activities this year, so we appreciate Metricon’s involvement in our Matched Giving Month and hope we can meet our fundraising goal to help more local mums and dads give their babies the best possible start to life.”

For those who are unable to make a monetary donation but would still like to contribute in some way, Olivia’s Place is always in need of volunteers and pre-loved baby items they can re-home such as clothes, cots, prams, car seats, high chairs, bottles, change tables and more.

To find out more about volunteering opportunities and what pre-loved baby items you can donate, contact the Olivia’s Place team.
