All profits from sales in fresh departments at Woolworth’s supermarkets this Saturday will go to Rural Aid’s Buy a Bale appeal in support of farmers impacted by the drought.
Fresh department profits donated on Saturday August 11 will help Rural Aid to fund more stock livestock feed for farmers, household supplies and counselling services.
Woolworths Supermarkets Managing Director Claire Peters said the grocery chain had ; “It’s been amazing to see our customers and store teams rally behind Aussie farmers impacted by this drought.
“In less than a week, our customers have already donated in excess of $600,000 for Rural Aid’s Buy a Bale appeal through our checkouts nationwide.
“This generosity is making a real difference in rural communities, and has inspired us to build on our support of Rural Aid’s vital work.
“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.”
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.
