We’re donating an additional $50,000 to support flood relief efforts in five communities we’re a part of in Victoria and NSW: Gunnedah, Lilydale, Maribyrnong, Moonee Valley and Wagga Wagga. This donation will provide a much needed boost to the recovery efforts, and 100% of funds will go directly to helping those still doing it tough.
GIVIT is managing our donation in collaboration with the Victorian and NSW governments. GIVIT works directly with councils, outreach teams, charities and community groups to identify exactly what’s needed and to ensure that 100% of publicly donated money is used to make sure people get what they need, when they need it.
We share a focus on investing in local communities with GIVIT, who have a local-first philosophy. They choose to spend donated money in local communities, buying locally and supporting local businesses wherever possible. This means donated funds have an even bigger impact as they not only enable the purchase of exactly what is needed, but also support the local retailers who are employing local people, providing opportunity and lifeblood to impacted regions.
