Hard Hats with warm hearts

The property and construction industry holds Hard Hat activities and events through the year to raise funds for homeless youth. Caring supporters from across the industry take time with their staff in construction sites and offices to find ways to come together and give back and help build Haven Homes across News South Wales, Victoria and Queensland.

A huge thank you to everyone who’s worn a Hard Hat for the Property Industry Foundation. We appreciate your efforts to give back to homeless youth in our annual community fundraiser.
