Pepperstone: Partnering with Australian Charity


Financial Donation will provide emergency support for 250 Australians in need throughout Queensland and the Northern Territory.

MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA., Apr. 06 /CSRwire/ -A new substantial financial commitment from Pepperstone to Street Swags Australia will provide emergency bedding to homeless people across Australia, the majority of those being mothers and children.

Pepperstone Partners with Australian Charity ‘Street Swags’ to Benefit Homeless and Victims of Domestic Violence

Street Swags Australia will provide its custom version of the iconic Australian ‘Swag’ a canvass tent-mattress hybrid to homeless through drop-in centres and soup kitchens across the country. The effort is part of Pepperstone’s 2015 Corporate Social Responsibility commitment to military veterans, homelessness and indigenous Australians.

“This year, Street Swags will distribute more than 5,000 swags across Australia, bringing the total since Jean Madden designed the swag and started the charity to just over 36,000. Unfortunately, it’s a drop in the ocean when you consider that on any given night, 1 in 200 Australians are homeless and tens of thousands are sleeping rough.”

Street Swags are manufactured at Woodford Correctional Centre and other correctional centres throughout Australia, to give prisoners work readiness skills along with tertiary qualifications.
