Supporting our local community is one of the core values at Motorama.
Every year, through our Community Donation Program, we donate $100,000 to four local charities that all do wonderful things within our community. Anybody that purchased a car from Motorama Pre-Owned during 2020 could vote for one of the four local charities. We are often told that choosing just one charity for us to contribute to is most guests hardest decision.
In 2020, Foodbank Queensland received 18.9% of the vote, equating to a donation of $18,900
Foodbank Queensland is the largest and most trusted hunger relief charity in Queensland. Each year, Foodbank sources and provides over 14 million kilograms of essential groceries to a large network of front-line charities to support 1 in 5 Queenslanders who are in crisis. Foodbank Queensland also runs a School Breakfast Program. Delivered in over 300 schools, this program feeds more than 29,000 children every week.
Hunger in our local community is a very real problem. Last year, Foodbank helped provide enough food for over 25 million meals. But they want to do so much more, explains Kim Reid, Impact and Development Manager at Foodbank Queensland:
"Foodbank Queensland is grateful for the support of Motorama customers donating almost $19,000. With partners like Motorama, Foodbank Queensland can continue to provide the most food to the most Queenslanders in need in the most efficient and effective ways. The most shocking figure about Queensland hunger is how little it takes to help. Every $1 donated to Foodbank can be turned into two nutritious meals for a Queenslander suffering from hunger. Thank you to Motorama for continuing to support our communities.”
"On behalf of the Motorama Charity Foundation, I'd like to thank all our Motorama Pre-Owned Retail teams and customers for helping choose how we supported our four charities", said Damian Woelders. "We are very proud to donate this money to these worthwhile causes and will continue to do the same in 2021."
