Bunnings Puts Sizzle Into Disaster Relief Fundraising

Pop into your local Bunnings store this Friday 15th February for a sausage sizzle to support Australians devastated by natural disasters in our country's north and far south.

The nation-wide Bunnings fundraiser, manned by team members on the tongs, will support GIVIT's relief efforts providing essential items for communities in Queensland and Tasmania recovering from the recent floods and fire.

GIVIT.org.au, a national online giving platform, supports more than 2,400 charities, schools and community groups across Australia to meet the immediate needs of our most vulnerable. All Bunnings stores across Australia will hold fundraising sausage sizzles, manned by their team, on Friday 15th February from 9am – 4pm. Mainland stores will raise funds for GIVIT's Queensland Floods appeal while Tasmanian stores will support bushfire-affected individuals and communities.

So don't be a silly sausage – don't bring your lunch to work on Friday. Instead organise your workmates to head down to your nearest Bunnings store and grab a snag in bread and support Aussies in their long recovery from floods and fires.

GIVIT's Founder and Director Juliette Wright thanked Bunnings for their amazing support. "We have been blown away by the amazing support of Australia. We promise 100% of all funds raised through Bunnings will be used to purchase essential items. We are also committed to purchasing locally wherever possible to support the economic recovery of these affected areas," she said.

Bunnings' Chief Operating Officer Debbie Poole, said "We are pleased to be able to partner with GIVIT who works with government agencies and not-for-profit organisations in times of disaster and emergency to assist local communities.

"Partnering with GIVIT means that all funds raised at the sausage sizzles can be directed where they are needed most. With a national presence, GIVIT can provide assistance to local communities in both Queensland and Tasmania."
