Proudly Supporting Rotary

Brianna Hatton - Tuesday, January 19, 2021

As a family owned and operated company, Dollar Curtains + Blinds are proud of their focus on craftsmanship and quality, which has ensured the company’s longevity for over 50 years. 

During this time, our focus has been on best practice throughout the entire business and as such, we have become a market leader in the design, manufacture, delivery and installation of window coverings. However, our focus is not just on the company – we believe strongly in giving back to the community and making a positive impact to people’s lives. Our corporate social responsibility initiatives include working towards making a positive impact on the world through supporting local and international initiatives that make a real difference to those in need.

We are very proud to have a 10-year partnership with Rotary and Rotary International organisations through the “Rotary Donations In Kind” program. Rotary Donations In Kind is a major recycling operation run by volunteers that supplies free products to people in need. Their projects provide solutions in delivering the most practical and cost effective way to help people in developing countries and also to provide excellent opportunities to help local communities.

Working closely with the Rotary Donations In Kind program, we have made many fabric donations, which have been distributed to people in need, including to East Timor and North Cambodia. The fabrics are made into very practical items including clothing, rice carry bags and sanitary products, of which remain in high demand in many countries and can significantly change the lives of many people.
 

 
A comprehensive program was featured in Siem Reap in North Cambodia through Rotary International, Opportunities of Development thru Art (ODA) and Days For Girls. Days For Girls is an organization that focuses on mobilising girls and women through changing the status quo with quality care solutions, health education and income-generation opportunities. 
 
The colourful and informative Days For Girls kits are distributed to students and include long lasting, easy- to-care health and hygiene items. In conjunction with these kits, an educational session on health and safety is delivered that includes topics such as self-defence. The assistance and knowledge accompanying this program is priceless and will stay with the students all their lives.

Rotary is a global network of 1.2 million people who want to take action to create lasting change in the world and our communities. There are 35,000+ clubs that work together to promote peace, fight disease, provide clean water, support education and much more.
