On December 9 2020 Tracey and her sons were officially handed the keys to their new home in Yea. This project is really special to ANZ because it’s one our employees have supported through volunteer hours and funds via the Community Foundation Grants. For every dollar ANZ employees contribute pre-tax to the Foundation the Bank matches it with an additional two dollars. Since 1988 more than $5m has been granted to charities in local communities around Australia.
ANZ District Manager, Rob Lichtendonk and Area Manager Ben Conway were both invited to hand over the keys to Tracey, at the home dedication ceremony, as thanks for the volunteer hours their teams have contributed this year.
“We’re proud to support both Tracey and Habitat for Humanity. They both demonstrate our commitment at ANZ to improve the availability of suitable and affordable housing options for Australians,” Rob says.
Tracey was overjoyed to have a home to call her own at last.
“The reason I applied for a Habitat home is for hope. Hope is the reason…I needed to find it for my family. This is an opportunity that is life changing especially for my youngest son and his disability, this is an incredible blessing,” she says.
