This is amazing news from Woolworths!
Woolworths has announced that all profits from sales in the fresh departments at its supermarkets this Saturday, August 11, will be donated to Rural Aid’s Buy a Bale appeal in support of farmers impacted by the drought.
On top of the $1.5 million donation Woolies already pledged, and the that they opened up fundraising channels in their stores, they've been able to provide more certainty to hundreds of farmers who have reached out in urgent need of feed for their livestock.
"On top of the $1.5 million commitment we made last week, we’ll be donating all fresh department profits this Saturday to Rural Aid’s Buy a Bale appeal at our supermarkets. “This means all profits from sales of fruit and veg, meat, the chilled section, bakery and deli at Woolworths supermarkets nationwide and online this Saturday will help support farmers doing it tough because of the drought.” Woolworths announced.
Customers can also donate to the Buy a Bale appeal at any Woolworths, Woolworths Metro or Woolworths Petrol store, as well as Woolworths Online. All donations over $2 are tax deductible and 100% of the funds go to Rural Aid. This weekend Woolworths will also put a spotlight on Australian produce, with Fresh Fairs in-store offering customers a great range of fresh products to sample across fruit and veg, deli, bakery, seafood and meat.
