Crema Group has donated $20,000 worth of concrete towards PIF House Clayton, a new house being purpose-built in Melbourne’s south-east for at-risk and homeless young people.
The company, through its subsidiary Piave, supplied the 80 cubic metres of concrete that was used to lay the foundation of PIF House Clayton.
Anglo Italian Concrete donated time and labour to complete the slab pour in late 2020.
PIF House Clayton is a three-way partnership between Frasers Property Australia, the Property Industry Foundation (PIF) and the Lighthouse Foundation.
Crema Group Director Luch Crema said that it was fantastic to see companies across the property industry come together to contribute to this important cause.
“Homelessness is an issue that we hold very close to our hearts,” Crema said.
“Considering just how wealthy of a country we are, Australia’s homelessness rates are far too high – the statistics just blow you away. Anything that we can do to help get these young individuals off the streets and into a home is such a positive thing.
“If everyone can do just a little bit, we can make such a huge difference to the lives of these homeless and disadvantaged youth.”
PIF House Clayton is part of the PIF House Program, which aims to build 125 bedrooms for at-risk and homeless youth in Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland.
Frasers Property Australia is sponsoring and building the PIF House Clayton, which will eventually house up to four disadvantaged youth and two live-in carers, cared for by the Lighthouse Foundation.
