Inspired by a generous donation
In March, Cire Services Inc. was delighted to meet with Designs to Inspire, a Melbourne-based team of property stylists, who have a lifelong passion for homes and interiors.
Founded in 2011 by Georgia K, the Designs to Inspire team have grown to be a leader in the home staging area. The team researches property styles, current design trends and analyses target markets in your area, to ascertain the optimum way to furnish your home. Further information can be found at www.designstoinspire.com.au.
Since trends always come and go, the Designs to Inspire team supports organisations through their furniture donation program, donating older and outdated furniture in order to make way for new trends and designs. Design to Inspire was pleased to support Cire Services during March.
Cire was approached by Designs to Inspire in March to ask if we were interested in a “bit of furniture” that they would like to donate to us. Of course, we couldn’t refuse this generous offer of receiving quality furniture to brighten up our facilities.
From an initial discussion, we were expecting a little bit of furniture, but soon we realised that their donation was much more generous than expected including several couches, chairs, tables, shelves, paintings, and cushions (lots of cushions) which amounted to two truckloads. Cire was overwhelmed with the generous donations received that will see our school and childcare facilities upgraded.
“We were ecstatic when we saw the sheer amount of donations. Cire has two campuses to maintain so we knew we wouldn’t have any problems finding new homes for every item. It’s the goodwill of businesses like Design to Inspire, who support organisations such as ourselves to continue to deliver quality services to the community.” Gus Seremetis CEO Cire Services
Cire staff member, Anthony Lindner, recently visited the Design to Inspire office to say thank you (and to pick up a few more cushions!). On behalf of Cire, Anthony was pleased to provide the Design to Inspire owners, Georgia and James and their great team a “Thank You” card, full of drawings from the children from our childcare centres and school students who will benefit from their generosity. The Design to Inspire team were also presented with copies of our recently released “Cire Community Cookbook”.
Being a registered charity, Cire relies on donations such as these to further enhance our programs and services. The generosity that Design to Inspire has shown us is greatly appreciated and for that, we say thank you. With thanks to Georgia K and the team for your support and goodwill, be assured that all the donations will be put to good use by our students, childcare and kindergarten kids and staff.
If you would like to make a donation to Cire Services or have questions about our you or your business can support us please contact Sandra Bucovaz on 03 5967 1776.
