The Season Of Giving
It’s the most wonderful time of the year, when we anticipate what will be waiting for us under the Christmas tree and count down the days until Santa arrives. However, some people aren’t as lucky so it’s the perfect time to give back to others.
2018 has been a huge year for the Arena, seeing us take on a new Naming Rights Partner and transforming into RAC Arena. Along with the new name came updated branding, resulting in new uniforms. As part of the AEG ethos to reduce our impact on the environment, and give back to the community, we teamed up with Homeless Connect to donate some of our clothing items, which they shared with their pals at Street Friends.
Homeless Connect provide a diverse range of free essential services to people experiencing or who are at risk of homelessness. Street Friends is also a volunteer run group committed to helping make life more comfortable for the homeless of Perth including preparing meals, running knitting groups and seeking out service providers such as hairdressers.
Through our partnership with these local charity groups, 239 rebadged jackets, 237 tee-shirts and 21 hats found a well deserving home this holiday season.
