Head of Guardian Pharmacy Kurt O’Brien is set to join thousands of other Australian leaders in this year’s Vinnies CEO Sleepout
On 17 June 2021 Mr O’Brien will sleep without shelter for the night to help raise critical funds for those experiencing homelessness within the community.
This year, Mr. O’Brien has set a fundraising goal of $5,000 with Guardian Pharmacy’s parent company, Sigma Healthcare, pledging to match every dollar up to this goal.
All proceeds will go towards breaking the cycle of homelessness and poverty facing more than 100,000 people throughout Australia.
“Participating in Vinnies CEO Sleepout each year is an important part of our community engagement ethos which we are so passionate about at Guardian,” said Mr O’Brien.
“This year will mark my third year being involved in the CEO Sleepout initiative and more than five years working with Vinnies to support those experiencing disadvantage and homelessness within the community.
“The sleepout is designed to increase awareness around homelessness in our communities and help others gain a better understanding of what Australians living without shelter experience daily, so I’m looking forward to doing what I can to aid Vinnies’ fundraising efforts with the support of the Guardian Pharmacy network.”
