CR has today announced they will donate A$50,000 to the Australian Red Cross Fire Appeal to support continued bushfire disaster relief and recovery efforts across the nation.
The donation will assist the Australian Red Cross to provide emergency grants to those who have lost their homes, or where it is no longer safe to return home.
It will also support the Australian Red Cross to source and deliver emergency food, water and relief items to people cut off by fires and enable trained specialist personnel to continue to be available at more than 15 evacuation and recovery centres across the nation.
Continuing our efforts to support communities affected
CR CEO John Barbagallo said that this donation reflects on the need to contribute to the many people, families and communities sadly impacted by the shocking summer of fires across Australia.
“Like all Australians we’ve been moved by the stories of local communities coming together to support one another during the devastating bushfires,” said Mr Barbagallo.
“Today’s announcement builds on our own CR staff fundraising and donation efforts plus CR donations made prior to Christmas to the Australian Red Cross and New South Wales Fire Rescue Service.”
