Fallon Solutions Community Support Initiative
The Fallon Cares initiative is a program that we have set up to bring together all of our community support initiatives. Through the history of the company we have lent a hand when needed to various different causes. Notably we helped people affected by the Brisbane floods of both 1974 and 2010/2011, and less notably but equally important we support local sporting teams, cancer and MS charities, organisations that assist the homeless and less fortunate, the PCYC amongst many others.
Towards the end of each year, we look to support organisations that help their local communities.
In late 2018 we heard of the good work the Logan PCYC was doing with the youth of the surrounding areas by giving them a judgement-free place to relax, hang out, play sport and most importantly receive support when they need it. They had a place designated for their ‘Youth Hub’ but because of a lack of funding, it wasn’t yet functional. So we asked our team of tradespeople and office support staff if they would volunteer their time to help, and it was a resounding yes.
So on a hot December day in 2018 we installed a new kitchenette, cleaned up and made safe a mix of electrical wires in their aging electrical system, installed USB power points, supplied a new fridge and cooled the area down by installing some new energy efficient fans.
At the end of 2019 we worked with Safe By the Bay at Wynnum, an organisation that supplies fresh food to locals in need. We updated their kitchen, improved the security and installed access control and provided more self-sufficiency with fresh produce.
