Around 45 Lendlease employees took part in a community project at Kalano Aged Care Service with Australian Red Cross on the Thursday before lockdown.
The group of volunteers replaced washing machines, build a Bower Hut and yarning circle, tidy gardens and introduce new vegie gardens, upgrade plumbing and electrical services and resurface the driveway and carpark - including new line marking and some painting.
Australian Red Cross is one of more than 47 national in-person and virtual volunteering opportunities selected as part of Lendlease Foundation's annual Community Day initiative, which this year is celebrating its 26th anniversary.
Last year more than 1,000 Lendlease employees around the world joined community volunteers supporting over 60 Community Day projects.
"These community days enable Lendlease employees to work with their colleagues and community partners to make a difference in the communities where they live and work," said Cate Harris, Lendlease Group Head of Sustainability and Lendlease Foundation.
"Community Day offers our people the chance to apply their skills to make a positive contribution to our local communities."
Reinforcing Lendlease's partnerships with the communities they operate in, Community Day projects are sourced from existing relationships with national organisations including Oz Harvest, Australian Red Cross, Landcare, and Career Seekers, as well as other charities and not-for-profits.
