Domino’s Collie will be donating 50 cents from every pizza sold today between 4 – 9pm to Rural Aid, to support Australian farmers and rural communities affected by the drought.
Across parts of Queensland and New South Wales farmers are facing ruin in what some are calling the worst drought in history.
Domino’s Australia and New Zealand chief executive officer Nick Knight said along with donating 50 cents from every pizza sold to the the cause they will donate an additional $40,000.
“So many farmers out there are doing it really tough at the moment and the Domino’s Collie team are throwing their full support behind them by raising vital funds for Rural Aid,” Mr Knight said.
“The not-for-profit organisation does amazing work in supporting farming communities through programs like Buy a Bale, which delivers hay for cattle feed and other essential items.
“These farmers are a part of the Domino’s family – they supply our food, they are our business partners, our customers, and they are fellow Australians, so it’s important we do what we can to help.”
Collie Domino’s franchisee Zen Frost said he and the Collie team are happy to be able to help.
“We raise money for our local community, like for our sports and school groups but if we can help out the farmers in need at the moment too it helps all of us in regards to our food,” Mr Frost said.
