“When my kids ask me what I did today, I tell them I did more than make Christmas decorations for Santa. I tell them that today we made sure that we remembered to do something to make the world a better place or that we were able to make someone’s day brighter by donating our services or products. For me, running a successful business at Chas Clarkson means much more than just the bottom line, it means giving back to the community and creating a platform where our team can grow and prosper.”
Chas Clarkson takes its role within the community sincerely and we support many charitable foundations. We donate our cheerful Christmas decorations to organizations such as the Variety Club, Fairy Sparkle, Randwick Children’s Hospital, The Salvation Army, The Starlight Children’s Foundation and St. Vincent’s Hospital were we not only supply the decorations but we also install, dismantle and store the tree from year to year. On a more global level, we proudly support the Aberdare Ranges Primary School in Kenya where we supply support to educate, feed and cloth two primary aged children throughout the year. They are making great progress and they send us regular updates on their activities and achievements.
"On behalf of The Salvation Army Sydney Streetlevel Mission, we would like to thank you for your generous donation of Christmas trees and other decorations. They made the event site look so much more festive- converting it to a celebration!
Your commitment to helping us with the Christmas season is greatly appreciated. With the generous support of organisations like yours, we were able to reach out and connect with the disadvantaged in our community by providing meals, gifts, hampers and activities for over 1000 people who attended the event we hosted on Christmas Day. As such, your contribution ensured every member of our community had the opportunity to experience a joyous Christmas Day...."
