Good Guys step up for home­less

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Near You -

STAFF from The Good Guys Bel­mont showed how good they re­ally were by head­ing to the CBD to push around a food col­lec­tion cart for char­ity.

Food Res­cue, which is also based in Bel­mont, re­lies on vol­un­teers to op­er­ate its Cargo Cart.

Th­ese vol­un­teers are usu­ally sourced from busi­nesses in the CBD who push the cart through the streets of the CBD, vis­it­ing cafes af­ter lunch.

Left­over sand­wiches, wraps and rolls are col­lected then a Food Res­cue van dis­trib­utes the pack­aged food to home­less agen­cies the same day.

On Mon­day, Fe­bru­ary 23, team mem­bers from The Good Guys Bel­mont, in­clud­ing store manager Joshua Rimunui, trav­elled in to the CBD to take part for the first time.

“It is fan­tas­tic for my team to vol­un­teer and see first­hand how food is res­cued and ap­pre­ci­ate the amaz­ing work Food Res­cue do to sup­port nu­mer­ous agen­cies around Perth,” Mr Rimunui said.

The Good Guys Bel­mont store manager Joshua Rimunui and Ca­rina Dy­mock col­lect food dona­tions from around the CBD.
