Australia’s leading mortgage broker, Aussie Home Loans, is celebrating 20 years of feeding people in need at Christmas.
This year Aussie’s team members and mortgage brokers prepared over 200 food hampers, donated money and provided almost 400 premium leg hams to OzHarvest charities, providing over 5,500 meals. In addition, for the third year running, James Symond, Aussie’s Chief Executive Officer donated an additional 5,000 meals on behalf of Aussie’s industry and business partners.
OzHarvest is Australia’s leading food rescue organisation, collecting over 180 tonnes of quality excess food from food donors Australia-wide each week, and delivering to more than 1,300 charities, providing much-needed assistance to vulnerable men, women and children.
James Symond, said “We’re really proud to be celebrating 20 years of supporting Australians through food donations, after starting with one charity in 1998 with the Exodus Foundation’s Christmas Day lunch in Sydney.
“Our whole team has embraced our Christmas initiatives and our partnership with OzHarvest, now in its third year, and participate in these activities with genuine enthusiasm”, he added.
OzHarvest Founder and CEO, Ronni Kahn, said “We love the great contribution the Aussie team make to OzHarvest each year, especially at Christmas when there are so many people struggling to put food on the table. The hams are always big hit with the charities we support.”
Many of Aussie’s 220 stores across Australia are also participating in Christmas food drives for OzHarvest and making donations to their local charities.For more information, visit aussie.com.au.
