APM donated $29,000 to The Salvation Army to help bring much needed joy and happiness to families in need of assistance this Christmas.
On behalf of APM, Karen Rainbow, Chief Executive Officer – Employment Services, presented the cheque to John Williamson from The Salvation Army.
These funds were donated due to our Christmas Campaign.
APM Employment Services and WorkCare teams not only reached but exceeded the target of placing 1000 people into jobs across Australia between Monday 20th November to Sunday December 17th.
For most of us Christmas is one of the happiest times of the year, but it can be a time of significant hardship, loneliness and struggle for many.
