Thank-you Aus­tralia

Central and North Rural Weekly - - COLUMN -

To­gether we have com­mit­ted over $12 mil­lion to help com­bat drought. By col­lect­ing our cus­tomers’ gen­er­ous do­na­tions and match­ing them dol­lar-for-dol­lar in Au­gust and Septem­ber, Coles has raised over $7.1 mil­lion for drought-af­fected Aussie farm­ers. These funds mean the Coun­try Women’s As­so­ci­a­tion can help drought-im­pacted com­mu­ni­ties with house­hold and fam­ily ex­penses. In ad­di­tion, Coles is pro­vid­ing a to­tal of $5 mil­lion in grants or in­ter­est free loans from the Coles Nur­ture Fund for farm­ers who have a pro­ject to com­bat drought in the fu­ture.
