Giving back to the community
When we were putting our Business Plan together, having a Goodwill component was very important to us. We felt then and still feel it is important to give back to the community that supports you. Supporting others is a big part of Opendrawer and through our Goodwill Drawer we have been able to help some very worthwhile causes.
Opendrawer supports the Margaret Pratt Foundation by holding a ‘Hottie Cover’ Challenge and Exhibition bi-annually. The next exhibition will be held in May 2015.
In previous years we have supported ARC Vic by donating the use of our Gallery to hold an art exhibition.
This year, Opendrawer will be hosting the Days for Girls on a monthly basis, for people to come together and create the packs that help to improve health and hygiene across the world.
