Michael Hill is donating $100,000 of its sales to help the affected communities of the floods currently impacting Queensland and NSW.
Australian retailer, Michael Hill, has pledged to donate $100,000 of the weekend’s sales to help support the communities impacted by the floods across Australia.
As a result of the flooding, the Michael Hill store located in Lismore has been shut and remains closed until further notice.
The business, which is headquartered in Brisbane, shared a statement regarding its pledge towards the impacted communities.
“The Michael Hill team has been thinking of all those affected by the recent floods, many of whom make up our close communities in South-East Queensland and New South Wales,” said a statement from the company. “While this is an incredibly tough time for so many, what makes the Australian community great is the willingness to pitch in and help friends and neighbours in times of need.
“Just like Australia has seen before, people will come together to assist in the recovery efforts however they can. Stay safe and look after one another, we’re in this together,” the statement read.
Similarly, the CEO of Michael Hill, Daniel Bracken, shared a post regarding the donation. “Following the devastating floods impacting South East Queensland and New South Wales, as a Brisbane based business we wanted to help support the communities we live and work in,” he wrote on LinkedIn.
