No one deserves to go hungry this festive season.
That’s why MAX Employment Glenorchy have gotten into the Christmas spirit, banding together with local employers, organisations and charity SecondBite
to help vulnerable members of the community.
MAX Glenorchy Business Manager Karyn Grueber said they helped out SecondBite by collecting chocolate and lolly donations from staff across the region for job seekers and community volunteers to prepare hampers.
“It’s great to be able to support a wonderful charity like SecondBite to feed those in need this Christmas,” she said.
“Everyone here put in a big effort to help them with the hampers that will go to those less fortunate families and support SecondBite’s vision to reduce food waste.”
For every job placed before Christmas Eve, MAX will contribute $5 to SecondBite, helping provide crucial funds to continue to feed those in need these holidays. So far, the region has raised more than $2600 to help vulnerable families.
SecondBite State Manager Aaron Kropf thanked the MAX team for their support and were overwhelmed with the donations so far.
“The generous donation of funds to SecondBite will go a long way in supporting the most vulnerable members of our community,” Mr Kropf said.
“For every dollar donated, SecondBite are able to provide four nutritious meals to those in need this Christmas.
“The donation of lollies and chocolates will be a welcome addition to the 600 hampers that SecondBite provide for agencies over this busy period and I am sure they will put a smile on many kids’ faces who would normally miss out.”
SecondBite provides access to food for people in need across Australia by rescuing and redistributing surplus food, building community capacity in food skills and nutrition.
