With Heart, a Gloria Jean’s Coffees Foundation, have made a $5,000 donation to the Surf Coast Bushfire Appeal in Victoria to support the communities in the state’s southern region affected by the recent bushfires.
The donation comes off the back of With Heart’s $5,000 contribution to the Lord Mayor’s Disaster Relief Fund in Western Australia recently to assist the victims of the Waroona and district fires.
Gloria Jean’s Coffees Managing Director Rick Graham said the company’s franchise partners are passionate about corporate social responsibility and assisting their local communities.
“It gives me great pride to work with such an altruistic, community-minded team who always put their hands up to help those less fortunate.”
“The core purpose of With Heart is to support our local community and we are proud to do all we can to assist important causes such as the Surf Coast Bushfire Appeal, which will help those impacted by the disaster to rebuild their lives.”
Apollo Bay, Anglesea and Winchelsea Community Bank® Branches of Bendigo Bank joined forces with The Spirit Foundation to coordinate the appeal.
