We pledged $150,000 to assist in the ongoing relief and recovery efforts supporting communities impacted by the devastating 2020 bushfires around Australia. In our effort to help our communities now, tomorrow, and in the future, we donated $50,000 each to SA Bushfire Appeal, Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal 'FRRR' and Reforest Now.
Thank you to the brave fire fighters and volunteers across the country giving tirelessly to our communities and supporting one another in such tragic conditions.
