Better Our CommunitiesBettering Our Communities is fundamentally about doing the right things the right way - from setting high ethical expectations for our employees and suppliers, to providing a progressive and inclusive workplace, encouraging our associates to contribute and help their local communities.
2016 Selected CharitiesEach year we select two local charities to support through donations and fundraising. This year we are proud to support: -
OzHarvest is the first perishable food rescue organisation in Australia collecting quality excess food from commercial outlets and delivering it, direct and free of charge, to 600 charities providing much needed assistance to vulnerable men, women and children in major metropolitan cities of Australia.
Cancer Council's Relay for Life
Relay For Life is a chance for communities to recognise and celebrate those who have overcome cancer or are undergoing treatment, as well as the people who care for them. Thousands of Australians participate in over 200 Relays across Australia each year. Some people Relay in memory of a loved one lost to cancer. Relay participants are encouraged to fundraise in the lead up to the event, with all money raised supporting the Cancer Council’s vital research, prevention and support services.
If you are a charity and would like our help or support, here are some frequently asked questions which you might find useful before submitting your request to us.
What help can you provide?
We can provide free product to charities and organisations undertaking activities to raise money for charity. We cannot guarantee specific products and quantity offered, as it is dependent on availability at the time of the event. However, we will endeavour to meet your requirements wherever possible.
Can you deliver the product to us?
Unfortunately, we cannot organise delivery of our products. It will therefore be on a collection only basis.
What are the criteria for sponsorship?
You must be a registered Australian charity and an organisation that supports our corporate social responsibility vision.
When and how should we apply for sponsorship?
Applications can be made throughout the year by submitting an application form found at the bottom of the page, although we do ask that you give us at least one month's notice before your event is due.
How do you select which charities or organisations to support?
Most of our sponsorship budget is pre-allocated through our existing relationships with charities, but we are committed to supporting other charities that require our help. We will consider any charity or organisation that meet our criteria.
