For the third consecutive year, Dan Murphy’s supported National GIVIT Day over the weekend hosting charity events at its stores across the country, with all donations going to Australians facing economic and social hardship this festive season.
GIVIT is a not-for-profit donation platform that allows people to directly support those in need through 4,500 charities and support organisation partners across Australia. Dan Murphy’s celebrated their ongoing partnership with GIVIT through a nationwide initiative last weekend, which included community barbecues, gift wrapping stations, competitions, and gold coin donations at over 270 stores.
Dan Murphy’s Managing Director, Agnieszka Pfeiffer-Smith said, “We saw remarkable generosity at our stores in support of National GIVIT Day and to have the Better Beer team lend a hand to encourage donations was a fantastic outcome. Our partnership with GIVIT serves to make a positive impact on local communities in need of support and make this festive season brighter for everyone.
Over the weekend, Dan Murphy’s stores raised an incredible $121,052, doubling the results from 2022, with one hundred percent of funds going directly to the GIVIT ‘Families in Need this Christmas’ appeal. This was in addition to a $100,000 donation directly from Dan Murphy’s.
Caroline Odgers from GIVIT said this will go a long way, particularly as the demand for assistance has increased by 84% since the pandemic and several natural disasters over the past two years.
including kitchen equipment so a family can enjoy Christmas lunch, or toys for children living in temporary accommodation which will bring much-needed joy,” she said.
The Dan’s Community Squad extends warm wishes for a Merry Christmas and expresses gratitude for the ongoing support of the community. The efforts of all involved in supporting the National GIVIT Day in 2023 are truly appreciated.
