Brokerage supports Christmas food drive

Aussie Home Loans, in partnership with OzHarvest, has this week handed out food donations to support Australians in need.

Hundreds of Aussie Home Loans staff and mortgage brokers prepared 287 food hampers, more than 250 legs of ham and donated cash to food collecting organisation OzHarvest, as part of the lender’s ongoing support of the charity initiative.

The initiative aims to provide over 5,000 meals to Australians in need this Christmas.

OzHarvest collects roughly 100 tonnes of excess food from donors per week, which it then donates to thousands of vulnerable Australians through charities across the country.

On Wednesday (6 December), Aussie’s CEO helped distribute the food donations to the beneficiaries.

CEO James Symond commented: “We are in our second year of partnering with OzHarvest and I am proud our staff have become so involved in helping people in need through this great charity.”

Aussie’s 215 stores will continue to collect food for the charity over the Christmas period through food drives and local donations.

OzHarvest founder and CEO Ronni Khan said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Aussie to help families in need this Christmas. Together, we can put much needed food on the table for those who may not know where their next meal is coming from.”

According to the Australian Council of Social Service, three million Australians live below the poverty line, 751,000 (17.4 per cent) of which are children.
