Help communities impacted by drought and bushfires

Australian Workshop members are encouraged to drop by your local Bunnings store’s sausage sizzle between 9am and 4pm this Friday (November 22) to help raise funds and support communities impacted by drought and bushfires.


Bunnings will again partner with GIVIT whose national presence aids local communities all over Australia by working closely with charities, community groups and councils to ensure that support is directed where it’s needed most.


Bunnings Chief Operating Officer, Debbie Poole, is pleased the team could pick up the BBQ tongs and help support those affected.


“As a part of those local communities who have been affected, we want to help. Many of our regional teams have already been assisting impacted communities on a local level but we had team members from all over Australia also wanting to lend a hand for these two important causes,” Debbie says.


“Our team members always embrace the opportunity to get behind the BBQ themselves to help out. We are pleased to be partnering with GIVIT who do incredible work supporting communities who need it most.”


With some Bunnings store teams already on the ground supporting evacuation centres and the local community where possible, the national sausage sizzle fundraiser will provide further assistance to those affected by drought and bushfires.


GIVIT CEO Sarah Tennant says 100% of all funds raised through Bunnings will be used to purchase essential items for those affected. "We are also committed to purchasing locally wherever possible to support the economic recovery of these affected areas,” Sarah says.


For those unable to make it to their local store, you can donate online via the Bunnings website at https://www.bunnings.com.au/givit-fundraiser.

Re: Help communities impacted by drought and bushfires

Many thanks to all those Workshop members who supported last Friday's community fundraising event. 

 

Over $600,000 was raised for Australians affected by drought and bushfire.
