The Harcourts Foundation, Harcourts South Australia and the Salvation Army have teamed up for the Cubby House Project, a program to raise money for the Burlendi Youth Shelter.
The Salvation Army’s Men’s Shed has built four cubby houses which will be auctioned off at the Harcourts South Australia Quarterly Awards event on Thursday.
The Harcourts Foundation will donate all the funds from the auction to the Burlendi Youth Shelter.
Located in the northern suburbs of Adelaide, the Burlendi Youth Shelter provides emergency short-term accommodation for homeless children aged 15 to 17.
Earlier this month, The Harcourts Foundation – the charitable division of Harcourts – announced that it has raised $5 million since its launch in 2008.
The Harcourts Foundation has supported White Ribbon Australia, a campaign to prevent men’s violence against women and beyondblue, an organisation working to address mental health issues. In addition, it has granted over 326 community grants nationwide.
In September, The Harcourts Foundation held its “Walk a Mile in Their Shoes”, an event in which all participants wear high heels, to raise money and awareness for White Ribbon.
