Being an active part of our community is an important value within Preston Rowe Paterson.
Many of our staff are active volunteers within the Geelong, Warrnabool and Mount Gambier communities. We value our reputation as strong corporate citizens, be it through business group memberships, sponsoring an event, a sporting club or community centre.
Some of our major community partnerships include;
Lazarus Community Centre, Geelong which our CEO, Gareth Kent is the Chair . The mission at Lazarus Community Centre is to provide a safe and welcoming place for a diverse range of people to meet and be supported as valued members of our community.
Lazarus Community Centre provides a safe place for people suffering from homelessness or disadvantage, to come to during the day, and receive services such as hot showers, fresh clean clothing, a hot meal, and a place to use as recreation or relaxation.
Geelong Connected Communities is a philanthropic organisation that provides grant support to volunteer based groups who generally find it difficult to source grant funding. PRP have been an inaugural supporting sponsor of GCC since its inception 8 years ago.
We firmly believe that a part of being a successful business is by giving back to your community.
