Coles Liquor fundraising to support Clean Up Australia

Thousands of volunteers across Australia are expected to receive kits to clean up their local parks, beaches, rivers, and outdoor spaces in their local community.

This is thanks to what is said to be one of the most successful fundraising campaigns ever conducted by Coles Liquor.

In just two days, Coles Liquor says it raised more than $125,000 to support Clean Up Australia in its mission to clean up, fix up and conserve the environment.

Over the weekend of 6-7 March, 25 cents from transactions at Liquorland, First Choice and First Choice Liquor Market stores was donated to Clean Up Australia to support volunteer action across Australia.

The funds were raised through the Coles Liquor team’s Drop of Good campaign. This will fund Clean Up kits which include biodegradable rubbish and recycling bags, gloves, and a high-vis vest.

Coles Liquor General Manager Operations Steve Hugginson says the team was thrilled with the fundraising effort and the difference it will make in local communities across the country.

“This is the first time we’ve supported Clean Up Australia through our Drop of Good campaign and we’re grateful to our customers and team members for helping us to raise an incredible $125,149 in just one weekend,” he says.

“We were delighted to see our team members get involved too and band together to make a difference in their own communities by taking part in Clean Up Australia Day and picking up litter in their local area.

“We’d like to thank everyone involved for taking time out of their weekends and participating in what is the nation’s largest community-based environmental event.”
