CHARITIES AND FOUNDATIONS
Many of our retailers partner with charities, (or even have their own foundations), to make a difference in the lives of people, animals and the planet.
Coles Supermarkets partners with numerous local and international charities to raise funds and awareness for important causes.
More than 680 Coles supermarkets across Australia donate surplus fresh food to around 1300 community food programs which provide meals to disadvantaged Australians. Over the past seven years, donations from Coles have equated to 50 million meals. In addition to providing food donations, Coles also raises funds for SecondBite through the sale of $2 donation cards and shopping bags.
Coles is proud to support Redkite, which helps provide essential support and financial assistance to children and young people with cancer and their families.
Over the past five years, Coles team members and customers have raised $28 million for Redkite, which has enabled support for families around 120,000 times by helping to provide counselling services at hospital bedsides, financial assistance and scholarships for young cancer patients and survivors.
Clean Up Australia
As one of Australia’s largest retailers, Coles recognises its responsibility to the environment. That’s why we they always looking for ways to reduce our environmental footprint and contribute to the communities in which they operate. In late 2017, Coles was partnered with Clean Up Australia on environmental initiatives, such as Clean Up Australia Day and our Community Bags program, which encourages our customers to use reusable shopping bags.
Coles has a long history of supporting the communities in which we operate by raising funds for disaster relief. Coles team members and customers support relief efforts by donating funds as well as essential supplies to communities in need.
