Posted by Motorama in Motorama NewsSupporting our local community is one of the core values at Motorama. With our Community Fundraising Drive, we raised $100,000 that we decided to donate to local charities that all do wonderful things within our community, among which is Foodbank Queensland. Everybody that purchased a car from Motorama Pre-Owned could vote to nominate one of our chosen local charities. Choosing just one charity for us to contribute to is most guests hardest decision. At the end of the year the votes were counted and Foodbank received 15% of the votes.
Hunger in our local community is a very real problem. Last year, Foodbank helped provide enough food for over 22 million meals, with every dollar providing five meals to people in need. But they want to do so much more, explains Head of Fundraising of Foodbank Australia Lorelle Silveira :
"Foodbank Queensland is grateful for the support of Motorama customers donating $15,000. At the moment, there is a significant need to get food and groceries to people impacted by natural disaster and bushfires in Queensland.
Queensland has been ravaged by natural disaster – both drought and bushfire – and financial support allows us to be flexible, timely and cost efficient with relief. Because of the relationships we have with food growers, food producers, manufacturer and food and grocery, we a $1 donation into $6 worth of food and groceries. Donations like this one also give us the flexibility and agility to be able to specifically help communities and charities with the exact support they need, and when they need it.
The donation will have such an impact, as In a normal month, we assist over 200,000 people who would otherwise go without, and a further 6,939 people who ask for help are turned away empty handed because demand outstrips supply. With such a large number of additional people now requesting help, we will do our best to ensure everyone who needs assistance will receive it."
