Our Community

Being involved in the community is important to us. The Jodi Lee Foundation is the main organisation we are committed to supporting. We’re very proud to be a part of their fundraising efforts to help support and educate people about screening to prevent bowel cancer. We also support some other fantastic organisations who are all working hard towards raising funds for important research and awareness in other areas.

The Jodi Lee Foundation (JLF)

The Jodi Lee Foundation’s mission is to empower people to take active steps to prevent bowel cancer and live healthy lives. Kennett Builders formed a corporate partnership with The Jodi Lee Foundation due to a close connection with bowel cancer. Recently retired, John Kennett’s mother, Jean, lost her life to the disease at the age of 58. Keen to promote early detection, John introduced the Foundation’s Workplace Prevention Program to our 45 employees in 2013. As a result an otherwise healthy 38-year-old employee discovered a concerning polyp which was removed, and he now has a plan to monitor and manage his health. Check out the Jodi Lee Foundation website here.

Uniting SA

Uniting SA is a not-for-profit organisation all about respect, compassion and justice. With a long and proud history of building stronger communities, they have been dedicated to supporting South Australians for since 1919. Now celebrating their 100th year, the organisation has helped over 10,000 people in need every year and this essential service needs our support. Kennett proudly supported the 2018 Christmas Appeal and 2019 winter appeal. We think they do fantastic work which is vital for the community. To learn more about Uniting SA, visit their website.

Backpacks 4 SA Kids

Kennett is a passionate supporter of Backpacks 4 sA Kids which is a not-for-profit organisation which supplies backpacks full of helpful necessities for children who have had to leave their homes suddenly for safety reasons. The organisation provides much-needed help to relieve some of the stress and anxiety children face when they are removed from their family, often in traumatic situations and without the opportunity to take any personal belongings with them. Their work is invaluable and we are very proud to support them. Read more here.
