Our stores have and always will be an integral part of each community in which they serve. Our local connections run deep with team living, working and raising their families within these communities.
In tragedies such as the one we are experiencing, Bunnings team members have stepped up, providing products, time and services to those in need, supporting emergency services and those who’ve lost homes, businesses and livelihoods.
In addition, close to 100 of Bunnings’ own team members have taken paid time away from work to fight fires as members of the CFA, CFS, RFS, SES and defence force reserves. Bunnings continues to provide unlimited paid support to these team members and families. Along with local donations well in excess of $100,000, Bunnings is taking customer donations in-store and online for the Australian Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery Fund and will match any contributions made by our team members.
Bunnings is also holding a fundraising sausage sizzle at all stores across Australia and New Zealand on Friday 24 January between 9am and 4pm, with all funds raised going to the Red Cross.
The Bunnings team deeply understands the role it plays in serving communities as a trusted partner in good and bad times and looks forward to continuing this unwavering support in meaningful and practical ways.
Make a donation to the Australian Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery Fund below.
Your donation helps emergency teams to do their work – including the bushfires and heatwaves we’re currently seeing and disasters yet to come.
It enables the Red Cross to give people the support they need in disasters: whether that’s help to prepare, a safe place to take shelter, psychological first aid, information, and practical support through the months and even years it can take to recover. The vast majority of the Red Cross team are volunteers. The Disaster Relief and Recovery fund covers their costs, including training, equipment and transport as well as the coordination effort to ensure their teams are where the community needs them to be.
