7-Eleven Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director, Angus McKay, said the disaster has had a huge impact on 7-Eleven’s customers, but the company’s people, franchisees and supplier partners are working together to support communities and emergency service crews.

   

“The response from the emergency services crews, community organisations and the residents has been amazing, and I want them to know 7-Eleven, in partnership with the Salvos, is there for the long haul.

  

“We have supported The Salvos since 2014, partnering with them to support people experiencing homelessness and food insecurity. Being able to provide extra support for them to do their important relief work is a contribution we can make to helping the communities in which we operate.”

  

The Salvation Army personnel are on the ground right now providing thousands of meals and emotional support for those impacted by floods across the east coast of Australia, and we have begun our long-term recovery work in some areas.

 

“7-Eleven’s donation of fresh food to our evacuation centres in QLD provided very necessary assistance to those impacted by the devastating floods and our teams on the ground.   In addition to the fresh food deliveries, 7-Elevens financial contribution will enable The Salvation Army to provide ongoing support to the impacted communities. By working together, we can provide all those impacted with some hope and comfort. Thank-you 7-Eleven.”
