“There aren’t too many successful businesses in struggling or poor communities. Businesses do really well when the families and the people in that community are all looking after each other and building a stronger community. So it makes good business sense.”
Greg Beech, Panther Print
“My father owned a printing business and used to support the work of Scripture Union, so it’s an honour to be able to use my printers to support SU QLD in their work with children and families in our community.”
Greg and Panther Print provide practical and financial support to SU QLD, printing material for a range of events and newsletters throughout the year.
Barry and Sharon Weber, Weber Automotive
“Chaplains are such important figures in our community. They’re not trying to be a teacher, they’re not trying to be a guidance officer, they’re not trying to be a counsellor – they’re just trying to be a friend to the students who don’t have one, and that’s incredibly important.”
Weber Automotive have been supporting SU QLD and its chaplaincy program for 10 years, running ‘Chappy Weeks’ where 10 per cent of all sales go towards funding a chaplain in a local school.
Brad Hatten, St George Bank
“We absolutely love being a partner of SU QLD and we are so grateful for the incredible work they do in our communities. Seeing firsthand the difference they make in people’s lives, especially giving children and young adults hope, is truly remarkable.”
Because SU QLD’s vision aligns with St George’s core values of family and community, for every home loan referred through from SU QLD or their network, St George gives back 0.4% of the loan balance to support school chaplaincy.
