EASTS GROUP – FLOOD APPEAL
Many of us have either been directly or indirectly impacted by the damaging weather we have been experiencing across New South Wales and Queensland.
One of the regions most damaged by the recent floods is the Northern Rivers region of Mullumbimby and Upper Wilsons Creek.
The Sydney Roosters have close ties to the region, with the NRL squad’s week-long pre-season training camps having been held in Mullumbimby over the last two years.
The Mullumbimby Rugby League Club has hosted the Roosters’ pre-season training camps, with full use of the training field and facilities for the last two years.
Throughout these camps, the Roosters have spent time in the community, getting to know many of the locals in Mullumbimby and forging close ties with the Upper Wilsons Creek Region.
The region has been devastated by the recent floods, and the Sydney Roosters and Easts Group have pledged $50,000 to assist with flood relief in the Mullumbimby community and Mullumbimby Rugby League Club.
A portion of the Sydney Roosters and Easts Group pledge will be donated to the Mullumbimby Rugby League Club, which, like the attached pictures illustrate, has been decimated by the recent floods.
Not-for-profit charity Good360 will also be a beneficiary of the Sydney Roosters Easts Group pledge to provide essential goods to the Mullumbimby community.
Good360 uses a strategic 6 stage disaster recovery framework to connect the right goods, to the right people, at the right time to ensure that vulnerable local communities are not inundated with goods that subsequently become a burden.
The charities on the ground in their local community know what is needed and order the goods when they are needed most. Good360 has a network of 3,000 vetted charities and schools nationally, in the last 2 years have distributed 13.1 million essential items valued at over $95.5 million to disaster-affected regions of Australia. They have over 241 charities and schools registered in the flood-affected areas ready to distribute essential items to communities, with access available via their website 24/7.
Since launching in 2015, Good360 has received over $190 million (RRP) of donated goods from some of Australia’s leading brands, delivering them to charities of every size and cause area nationwide.
Leading Australian brands including BIG W, Harvey Norman, Colgate Palmolive, Dettol and Best & less to name a few trust Good360 to match their donated goods to people in need.
