Andoo, part of the Winning Group, has delivered appliances, furniture and mattresses to the value of $200,000 to local communities in flood impacted areas of northern New South Wales.
Andoo has teamed up with charity partner, Good360 to provide assistance in areas including Grafton, Mullumbimby and Lismore, donating immediate financial assistance and essential products. There is a further $300,000 worth of products to be delivered in the coming months.
Further to its partnership with Good360, Andoo has partnered with local charities and businesses including Koori Mail, Mullumbimby District Neighbourhood Centre and Mudyala Aboriginal Corporation, to help identify locals in need of donations.
Winning Group head of sustainability and CSR, Alice Kuepper said, “Arriving in the Northern Rivers communities four months after the floods, highlighted the need for continued help and awareness to ensure that flood victims can rebuild their lives and homes again.
“Caring is at the heart of Andoo – we genuinely care about people, communities and the planet and we have put this into action through our donation of products. We have been working with our charity party, Good360 to identify local charities and communities who need mattresses, furniture and appliances.
“We are proud to help people feel good and recognised by giving them brand new products. We have now delivered $200,000 worth of products to Mullumbimby, Lismore and Grafton communities and we hope this helps people to start to rebuild their lives.”
Winning Group chief marketing officer, Sven Lindell added, “It’s been a difficult few months for communities impacted by floods and many of us watching have felt helpless and unsure about the best way to support flood victims.
“With its mission to provide the most caring shopping experience in the world, for the world, Andoo has pledged $500,000 worth of product to flood-affected communities in New South Wales and Queensland. We hope Andoo’s donation helps to alleviate the tremendous pressure and strain these locals and communities are under.”
