Coles has teamed up with Curing Homesickness to raise funds to support children’s hospitals, foundations, and paediatric services.
Customers at Coles can support the initiative by purchasing a $2 donation card at checkout, by making a donation of their choice at a Coles supermarket, or by picking up a specially marked Mum’s Sause pasta or pizza sauce, as fifty cents from each product sold year-round goes to the cause.
Sally Fielke, General Manager Corporate and Indigenous Affairs at Coles Group, said Coles is focused on supporting Australians to live healthier, happier lives and they are doing that through their partnership with Curing Homesickness.
“Together with our customers, Coles has already raised more than $5 million for Curing Homesickness to help support a range of innovative and vital treatments, research, and technology in children’s hospitals across Australia.
“There are a number of important initiatives that will be funded from this year’s appeal to help support sick kids across Australia, and we encourage our customers to get behind this great cause.”
Nicky Bowie, General Manager at Curing Homesickness, encouraged shoppers to support the appeal.
“We are incredibly grateful for the generosity of Coles shoppers and team members who have supported our cause for the past four years. Funds raised have already had a significant impact on the lives of thousands of medically vulnerable babies, sick and injured kids across Australia.”
Funds raised in this year’s appeal will be distributed across the country to organisations including Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation, Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation, Women’s and Children’s Hospital Foundation, Canberra Hospital Foundation, and more.
Donation cards are available nationwide until 28 March.
