With natural disasters becoming increasingly common, Dominos registered charity Give for Good recognises the need for assistance not only after a disaster but also for resilience and preparedness workshops prior to a crisis.
One of the four areas of giving that Give for Good focuses on is disaster relief. In the event of a disaster, Domino’s takes pride in being the last store to close and has a long tradition of providing a safe, hot meal to people in need.
Domino’s Disaster Relief initiatives are supported by Give for Good, which funds future preparedness programmes, economic recovery, resilience aid, and the management of a wide range of societal repercussions following a natural disaster.
With this in mind, Give for Good will provide $100,000 to help fund Disaster Relief Australia’s localised Service Projects.
Give for Good General Manager Bronwyn Spencer said the two charities share a common goal in wanting to help communities rebuild and recover following a disaster and wanting to help everyone be as prepared as possible.
DRA’s Chief Executive Officer Geoffrey Evans said that with the assistance of Give for Good, the organisation’s goal to safeguard communities from future disasters could become a reality.
“While we may not be able to control a disaster from occurring, there are pre-emptive steps that we can take to educate and empower our communities so that they are well prepared in the event of a disaster.
“Our work with Give for Good will contribute to building a more secure community, providing the funding needed to invest in more educational programs, support veterans to find new purpose post-service, provide volunteers an opportunity to give back, and prove once and for all that we are stronger, together.”
